MOON CRASH WILL ALSO HELP FULFILL GEOLOGIST'S LAST WISH

Killed in a car crash in Australia in 1997, Gene Shoemaker - co-discoverer

of the Shoemaker-Levy 9 Comet - will have his ashes scattered on the Moon

when the Lunar Prospector crashes in search of water later this week.

COSMONAUTS PERFORM FINAL MIR SPACEWALK

Mir cosmonauts spent nearly 6 hours outside the battered spacestation

installing equipment, and unfolding an antenna. The cosmonauts tested

the potential of the antenna, and then disposed of it in space. They'll

return on August 28th, after which the station will probably remain

vacant until it crashes back to Earth in early 2000.

NASA CONFIRMS COLUMBIA'S FUEL LEAK

With the Space Shuttle Columbia safely on the ground, NASA engineers

have had the opportunity to examine the fuel leak. After an inspection,

they've confirmed three tiny holes in one of the shuttle's engine nozzles.

Although it didn't cause any damage, NASA engineers confirmed that it was

a little too close for comfort.

NEW extrasolar planet DISCOVERED AROUND IOTA HOROLOGII

Astronomers have discovered the newest extrasolar planet orbiting a

sunlike star in Iota Horologii. Twice the size of Jupiter, but with a

similar orbit to the Earth, the planet was discovered by the European

Southern Observatory in Chile.

DEEP SPACE 1 MISSED PHOTO OPPORTUNITY WITH ASTEROID

NASA's advanced Deep Space 1 probe missed its chance to catch pictures

of asteroid Braille when it passed only 10 miles away. The spacecraft's

auto-navigation system lost track of the asteroid's target at the last

minute, and it only caught photos of open space.

TITAN COVERED BY OILY OCEANS

Recent photographs from the Keck observatory at Hawaii have revealed

oceans of liquid hydrocarbons on Saturn's Moon Titan - including many

found on Earth before life developed. When it reaches Saturn in 2004,

the Cassini spacecraft will drop a probe onto the surface of Titan to

accurately determine the composition of its oceans.

KAZAKHSTAN-RUSSIAN COMMISSION MEETS TO DISCUSS LAUNCH PROBLEMS

A joint commission of Russian and Kazakhstan officials met today to

try and iron out their recent problems. After its recent ban of all

launches from the Baikonur cosmodrome, the Kazakhstan government has

wanted more control and a larger revenue share of Russian space launches.

LUNAR ECLIPSE DIDN'T DAMAGE PROSPECTOR

Although it was a serious concern to NASA engineers, Lunar Prospector

didn't suffer any damage when it passed into a partial lunar

eclipse - away from the Sun's power to recharge its batteries.

Prospector will crash onto the moon's surface on Saturday in

the hope of discovering ice.
