SURVEYOR FINDS DUST DEVILS ON MARS

The Mars Global Surveyor has found a number of unusual features

on Mars including what appear to be dust devils, and sweeping sand

that fills in craters. The dust devils can rise 8 km high, and

leave tracks in the sand that looks as if it was caused by a vehicle

driving across the landscape.

RUSSIAN satellite DISAPPEARS FROM RADAR

Shortly after takeoff, and Russian military satellite stopped

responding to signals from mission control in Khrunichev, and quickly

all communications signals from the satellite were lost. It's suspected

that the satellite probably fell from orbit into the Altai region

of Siberia.

SPACE FRONTIER FOUNDATION WANTS ISS HANDED OVER TO PRIVATE SECTOR

The Space Frontier Foundation recently released a policy statement

regarding its opinion on the future of the International Space

Station - that it should be handed over to private sector management

as soon as possible. This paper makes recommendations well beyond

the space commercialization plans NASA has already been considering.
