MIR MAY SHUTDOWN EARLIER THAN EXPECTED

By accidentally shutting down Mir's central computer system, a

Mission Control officer may have helped speed up the spacestation's

closure. Although the shutdown didn't threaten the crew, Russia has

decided to use this opportunity to begin preparing the station for

its final reentry.

UK WILL LAND A PROBE ON MARS

The British government has backed a plan to land a probe on the

surface of Mars. Named the Beagle 2 after Charles Darwin's ship,

the mission will be a part of the ESA's Mars Express mission. The

probe is expected to land on Mars in Christmas of 2003.

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION ATMOSPHERE IS TOXIC

NASA has admitted that the atmosphere in the new International

Space Station is unfriendly to human beings. Investigations were

carried out after the crew of the Discovery returned complaining

about nausea, vomiting and headaches. A special task force has

been created to solve the problem before the next shuttle visit

in December.

MISLAUNCHED WIRE PROVIDES USEFUL DATA AFTER ALL

It was thought to be a complete write-off, but it turns out that

the Wide Field Infrared Explorer (WIRE) can actually be used for

scientific purposes. Although the primary instrument on WIRE is

useless, its secondary instrument was used over the last month

to make some valuable observations of a nearby star.
