PROSPECTOR COULD BE DISABLED BY ECLIPSE

Final plans for the Lunar Prospector spacecraft may run into a little

snag. NASA was planning on smashing the probe into the Moon in search

of ice; however, there's a possibility the upcoming eclipse may damage

the spacecraft. It will spend 3 days flying into and out of the Earth's

shadow, and this may damage sensitive electronics on the probe - which

is already near the end of its life.

FUEL LEAK ENDANGERED SHUTTLE LAUNCH

Although it successfully made it into orbit, the Space Shuttle Columbia

developed a fuel leak shortly after launch. A previously unreleased video

shows a streak of ignited fuel developing from one of the shuttle's main

engines. If the leak had progressed any further, it could have cause an

emergency landing of the shuttle.

LATEST LAUNCH HELPS GLOBALSTAR BECOME OPERATIONAL

The latest Globalstar launch on a Delta 2 put another 4 telecommunications

satellites into orbit, and bringing the total number to 32. This is an

important milestone for the company as it's the minimum number of

satellites needed for the system to offer global telephone service

to its customers. Globalstar still plans to launch another 16

"birds" by the end of the year.

DEEP SPACE 1 PREPARES FOR asteroid PASS

Launched nine months ago, Deep Space 1 is being prepared for a flyby

of asteroid 1999 KD - renamed to asteroid Braille. The spacecraft will

fly within 9 miles of the asteroid, taking images, and sending them

back to Earth.

SAFE LANDING FOR Space Shuttle COLUMBIA

After an extremely short mission to deploy the Chandra X-Ray observatory,

the Space Shuttle Columbia returned safely to Earth piloted by Eileen

Collins - the first woman ever to land a shuttle. Columbia had been

in space for five days.

NASA COULD SUFFER DRASTIC BUDGET CUTS

A House subcommittee has approved a 10% cut of NASA's annual budget.

If this goes through, Administrator Daniel Goldin suggests it will

result in mass layoffs, the closure of 2-3 centers, and delay the

deployment of the space station.

NASA CONSIDERS FUTURE OF SPACE TRAVEL

Robert Frisbee, at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is working on

future generations of spacecraft that will help cross interstellar

space, including such exotic technologies as antimatter, fusion

and solar-sails.

STUDY REVEALS LESS asteroids THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT

At a recent press conference, NASA's David Rabinowitz said that

revised estimates of NEOs (Near Earth Objects) are 50% less than

previously thought - with only 500 to 1,000 objects. However, he

also went on to mention that we're due for a damaging collision

within the next century.
