CHANDRA IMAGES COMING THURSDAY

After years of development, NASA Astronomers are almost ready to begin using

the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, launched just a few weeks ago on the Space

Shuttle. NASA will unveil new images from the observatory at a press conference

on Thursday.

SEARCH FOR MARS LIFE BEGINS IN EGYPTIAN DESERT

European Space Agency scientists have decided to begin searching for life

on Mars by testing their theories in the Western Desert in Egypt. It seems

the sand in this region closely resembles that found on Mars. The results

will be used when the Mars Express probe launches in 2003.

SCIENTISTS CAN'T EXPLAIN ARCS IN NEPTUNE'S RINGS

When Voyager passed Neptune, it captured images of strange arcs in the

planet's rings. The arcs were originally explained as being caused by

gravitational interference from one of Neptune's moons, which causes

material in the ring to bunch up. But new evidence from Hubble calls

this theory into question.

JETS SEEN EMANATING FROM DISTANT STARS

Astronomers using the Subaru telescope in Japan recently captured images

of a nearby binary star system emanating two jets of gas. It's believed

that the jets are caused by protostars in the system interacting with one

another as they form.

NASA WORKING ON NEW X-VEHICLES

The Space Shuttle's days as the only spaceplane on the block may be numbered,

as NASA has announced they're working aggressively on the next generation of

reusable spacecraft: the X-33 VentureStar, which will be able to fly every

7 days; the X-34 rocket-plane, designed for launch from another airplane;

and the X-37 robotic mini-shuttle.

JAPANESE ROCKET MAY BE REMOVED FROM SERVICE

Under pressure to tighten spending, Japan's space agency is planning to

eliminate the smaller of its domestic rockets - the J-1. They instead plan

to build a similar rocket using cheaper overseas parts for Russia, and the

United States.

SHUTTLE LAUNCH DELAYS ANNOUNCED

The launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis has been delayed because of work

on Endeavour and Discovery to search for the same damaged wire that nearly

caused an aborted launch with Columbia. There may also be additional delays

in the schedule because of conflicting launch windows.
