MIR MAY SUFFER FROM LAUNCH BAN

Mir cosmonauts may have to return home early if the launch ban at the

Baikonur Cosmodrome isn't lifted. A Progress supply ship was originally

scheduled to link with Mir and resupply the spacestation, but the recent

launch ban due to a Russian satellite crash may place the entire

mission in jeopardy.

NASA APPROVES NEW Comet MISSION

Named Deep Impact, a new NASA spacecraft will meet with Comet Tempel 1

in July, 2005. Once the probe catches up with the comet, it will fire a

1,100-pound copper bullet at the nucleus, blasting out an enormous crater.

It will then close within 300 miles of the surface to survey the damage.

X-38 TESTS CONTINUE

The International Space Station's X-38 Crew Return Vehicle prototype

was tested again at the Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards,

California. Designed to ensure the crew of the ISS can safely return

to Earth in case of an emergency, the X-38 was test-dropped from an

altitude of 31,500 feet. More tests from higher altitudes are planned.

ASTRONAUT DIES IN MOTORCYCLE CRASH

Charles "Pete" Conrad Jr., the third person to walk on the surface of

the moon, was killed in a motorcycle accident on Thursday. He was riding

with his friends when he crashed going around a turn, and died later

in the hospital.

NIXON WAS PREPARED FOR GRIM Moon landing SPEECH

Almost 30 years ago, the Apollo Moon landing was a complete success,

but Nixon was ready with an alternate speech in case astronauts Neil

Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin never made it from the surface. After a

courtesy call to the astronauts' wives, the speech was to be

delivered to the American public.

MIR LEAKING AIR

Cosmonauts on board Mir have realized that their island in space is

starting to lose its atmosphere. Air pressure on the spacestation has

been steadily dropping, and so far the crew has been unable to find

the source of the leak. Russian space officials say that the station

has adequate air, and the crew is in no danger.

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH FOR GLOBALSTAR

The latest batch of Globalstar satellites have made it to orbit,

bringing the communications consortium's total to 28 satellites.

This latest group was launched on board a Boeing Delta II rocket

after a two-day delay due to high wind.
