LANDING SITE CHOSEN FOR UPCOMING MARS MISSION

The landing spot for the Mars Polar Lander has been selected to be

a strip of rolling, gentle hills near the planet's South Pole. The

probe will arrive at Mars on December 3rd, parachute down through

the atmosphere and finally land after firing its retrorockets.

HUBBLE OBSERVES HOURGLASS-SHAPED NEBULA

The Hubble Space Telescope has provided extremely clear images of the

Southern Crab Nebula (He2-104). Shaped like an hourglass, Astronomers

believe the nebula was created by a pair of stars orbiting one another,

spreading the nebula into the pattern.

NASA CONSIDERS INFLATABLE SPACE STATION MODULE

NASA is looking for a way to increase the habitable area on the International

Space Station by using an inflatable module called TransHab. In order the build

the module, however, the space agency needs an industry partner who'll do the

work for less than $200 million.

X-33 BEHIND SCHEDULE

Lockheed recently announced that its work on the new X-33 Space Shuttle

successor is behind schedule and overbudget. Several problems have

contributed to the delays, including issues with the lightweight fuel

tanks, rocket engines, and heat shield.

LAST MIR CREW PREPARES TO LEAVE

Things are looking more and more dire for the Mir spacestation as its final

crew prepares to return home. The Russian government can no longer afford to

maintain the station and will be forced to let its orbit decay, partially

burning up in the atmosphere.
