ASTEROID BRAILLE MAY BE BROKEN OFF FROM VESTA

Although it missed its close photo opportunity with asteroid

Braille, Deep Space 1 did get the chance to probe the asteroid

with some of its other instruments. The Infrared spectrometer on

board the probe returned data that indicates the asteroid could

be a chunk that broke off much larger Vesta.

SOLAR STORMS NEARING PEAK

Solar Astronomers monitoring the Sun detected a major X-Class

solar flare on Monday - one of the most powerful events seen

on the Sun in over 6 months. As the Sun is nearing the peak

of its 11-year solar cycle, increased activity has the potential

of damaging communications system.

INDONESIAN satellite READY FOR LAUNCH

An Indonesian telecommunications satellite - TELKOM 1 - is

ready for liftoff Wednesday at the European Space Agency launch

center in Kourou, French Guiana. It will launch on board an Ariane

42P rocket with two solid strap-on boosters. Arianespace was hoping

to launch 13 rockets this year, but this launch will only be their third.
