PROGRESS MAY LAUNCH TO MIR AFTER ALL

Kazakhstan officials are considering allowing a Progress supply

shuttle to reach the beleaguered Mir spacestation. They had originally

cancelled all flights from the Baikonur cosmodrome due to a satellite

crash, but appeals from the Russian government have caused them to

reconsider their position. These supplies are need to keep Mir from

reentering orbit uncontrollably.

RUSSIA CONSIDERED LAUNCHING NUCLEAR BOMB AT MOON

Once it was clear they were going to lose the space race, Russian

officials considered launching a nuclear missile at the moon, to

allow scientists around the world to photograph it. As the 30th

anniversary of the Apollo Moon landing approaches, new insights

into the Russian side of the race are made available to the public.

ASTEROID THREAT REDUCED TO ZERO

Although initial calculations showed a slight possibility that asteroid

1999 AN10 could crash into the Earth in 2028, this chance has now been

reduced to zero. These recalculations come thanks to previously unknown

44-year old photographs of the asteroid, giving Astronomers more

information to calculate the asteroid's trajectory.

NEW SPACE STATION SUPPLY VESSEL IN DEVELOPMENT

DaimlerCrysler Aerospace and French aerospace company Aerospatiale

Matra Lanceurs have signed a contract to develop a supply vessel for

station, and to remove trash, the Automated Transfer Vessel (ATV)

will be built by 2003.
