ESA UNVEILS Comet LANDING MISSION

As NASA cancels one Comet landing mission, the European Space Agency

announces another - the Rosetta. Planned for launch in January 2003,

the Rosetta will speed up to catch Comet Wirtanen and then land on

its icy surface. Instruments will then watch what happens to the

comet as it approaches the sun.

SALVAGERS ATTEMPT TO RAISE THE LIBERTY BELL

Resting at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, under 15,000 feet of

water, the Gus Grisson's Liberty Bell 7 may soon resurface. A salvage

team, led by Curt Newport, and financed by the Discovery Channel will

spend the next 12 days attempting to raise the space capsule with

the help of underwater robots.

NEW CLUES TO ARIZONA METEOR CRATER

A recent study has learned that Meteor Crater in Arizona was

probably caused when a 100 foot iron asteroid struck the Earth

at 45,000 miles an hour. Researcher Elisabetta Pierazzo and her

co-authors used math models and chemical analysis to determine

that 85% of the asteroid melted upon impact, with the remaining

fragments sprayed around the crater.

NASA TESTS X-34 ENGINE

NASA tested the Fastrac rocket engine in preparation for the first

powered flight of the experimental X-34 spaceplane. The engine was

tested at full power for 155 seconds, and generated 60,000 pounds

of thrust.
