GEMINI CONTINUES TO IMPRESS

The Gemini North telescope has lived up to the high expectations

of its builders. New images unveiled at a recent ceremony in Hawaii

displayed the telescope's amazing resolution power. Gemini South is

currently being constructed in Chile.

NEXT MARS LANDERS MAY WALK INSTEAD OF ROLL

Although it was able to provide useful new data, the Mars Pathfinder

Rover was restricted by the fact that it had wheels. A prototype

"walking" robot has been built at the University of Arizona, which

will be able to move across very difficult terrain - they're being

considered for future Mars missions.

CASSINI gravity BOOSTED BY VENUS

Cassini has made its second successful flyby of Venus, and in doing so,

picked up the speed it needs to make the next leg of its journey to

Saturn. Cassini flew within 600 km of the planet, and is now speeding

towards its next encounters: Earth in two months, and then Jupiter

in late 2000.

MIR MAY BE SAVED BY A MOVIE?

Film director Yuri Kara has come up with a unique plan to help save

the doomed Mir spacestation - he plans to shoot a movie on board, called

The Mark of Cassandra. Russian actor Vladimir Steklov has already

started his cosmonaut training.
