I don't know if you've heard yet, but NASA is planning to cancel the

Champollion ST4 mission - designed to land on a comet. Sad news for

space exploration. The Planetary Society has sent a letter to the

Congressional Committees overseeing the NASA program, and they

recommend you do the same. To read their letter, please visit the

following link:

If you want to get involved in the future of space

exploration, here's your chance to make a difference.

GALILEO BEGINS ENCOUNTER WITH CALLISTO

Galileo is about to begin the tenth encounter of its Europa

Mission - a close flyby of Callisto, one of Jupiter's largest

moons. Over the course of the next 4 1/2 days, the spacecraft

will fly within 1047 kilometers of the moon's surface.

COSMONAUT PROPOSES SHARES OF MIR

Prominent cosmonaut Vitaly Sevastyanov has proposed a new way

to save Mir - by selling shares in the space station to other

countries or foreign investors. Outside investors could use the

station to send astronauts or research missions.

X-34 MODEL TEST SUCCESSFUL

A 58 foot model of the futuristic X-34 rocket-plane was tested

Tuesday above NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in California.

The flight was used as a demonstration of many of the technologies

that will be used in future reusable launch vehicles.

NASA CANCELS CHAMPOLLION

Champollion ST4 was designed to land on the surface of a Comet

and study its composition, but now it appears the project won't

be going anywhere. Recent project overruns, and emergency repairs

to Hubble have forced NASA to cut the mission from its plans.

The probe would have launched in 2003, and landed in 2005.

IMAGES OF MARS CAPTURED BY HUBBLE

Thanks to Mars' closest approach to the Earth in over 8 years,

the Hubble Space Telescope was able to take a set of detailed

images of the Red Planet. Hubble captured the images when Mars

was only 87 million km away, and was able to resolve details

on the surface on 12 km across.

PLANETS WITHOUT stars COULD STILL CONTAIN LIFE

Planetary scientist David Stevenson believes that Earth-sized

planets ejected from early solar systems could still contain

life, huddled around volcanic vents similar to our own oceans.

Unfortunately, these planets would be almost impossible to detect.

ROCK CRYSTAL COULD HAVE BEEN OLDEST TELESCOPE

Professor Giovanni Pettinato of the University of Rome

believes that a rock crystal called the Nimrud lens found

in 1850 by archaeologist Sir John Layard could have been

used for an ancient telescope. The ancient Assyrians Astronomers

were renowned for their understanding of the skies, and this

lens could have contributed to their knowledge.

CHINA CLOSES IN ON MANNED SPACE FLIGHT

China is continuing its ambitious plans to put two men into

space by the end of the year 2000. This is just the first

part of their overall manned space program, which will launch

an independent space station and achieve a lunar landing

early in the next millenium.
