PERSEID SHOWER STARTS THURSDAY
Although the October Leonid meteor shower has been in the news recently,
the Perseid shower will be higher than average this year as well - in dark
skies you should be able to see 50-150 meteors per hour. The shower starts
on the Thursday and continues through Friday.
GLOOMY WEATHER THREATENS SOLAR ECLIPSE
Although they were supposed to flock into the path of the total solar eclipse,
gloomy weather forecasts have kept large numbers away from many of the prime
locations in Europe. Cornwall is suspected to only have 5-10% clear skies.
DAIMLERCHRYSLER WANTS MORE INVOLVEMENT WITH SPACE STATION
German-based DaimlerChrysler Aerospace (DASA) is hoping that the European
Space Agency will give companies in Europe the same access to space research
as the Space Commercialization Act in America. They're lobbying the ESA to
commercialize the entire European segment of the International Space Station
within the next four years.
LUNAR PROSPECTOR SUPPORTS SMALL CORE THEORY
Before its demise, the Lunar Prospector helped provide valuable data that
supports the theory that the Moon was actually a part of the Earth smashed
off by the collision with a Mars-sized planet billions of years ago. Lunar
Prospector measured the moon's magnetic field, and the results showed that
it has a much smaller metal core relative to the other inner planets.
