SURVEYOR LANDING SPOT TO BE SELECTED

A group of planetary geologists are meeting at a conference in

Buffalo to determine suitable landing locations for the Mars

Surveyor 2001 Lander, which will test technologies designed

to support human life.

HUBBLE'S DAMAGE WORSENING

The Hubble Space Telescope is on its last legs, with only three

functioning gyros (down from six), which it requires to change

its direction. Although it can still operate with only three, NASA

believes there's a 50% chance any one of the remaining gyros will

fail this year. A shuttle repair mission is planned for

later this year.

LEONIDS MAY PUT ON A SHOW

Experts believe that this year's Leonid meteor shower may be

one of the most spectacular. Scheduled to reach their peak

around November 17th, the Leonids are caused when the Earth

passes through the tail of Comet Tempel-Tuttle. It's may be

possible that the shower will reach a full-fledged storm, with

thousands of meteors visible per hour.

CASSINI GETS A BOOST FROM VENUS

Although it's bound for Saturn, Cassini will pass within 1,600

kilometers of Venus' surface today to receive a powerful

gravity boost of its velocity. After this, it will perform

a close pass of Earth, skimming the planet only 800 kilometers.

The spacecraft's nuclear powerplant has activists concerned.

FUSE TO LAUNCH

With the final preparations complete, NASA's Far Ultraviolet

Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) is ready for its launch on

board a Boeing Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral. FUSE

will search for the "fossil records" of the Big Bang and

uncover secrets about the origin of the universe.

SCIENTISTS TO STUDY FAR SIDE OF THE SUN

The European Space Agency announced that it will be using its

SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) spacecraft to monitor

the far side of the sun. Although the spacecraft doesn't view

the far side directly, it can detect strong ultraviolet emissions

from active regions of the sun, and provide warnings for

increased solar activity.

SETI@HOME SURPASSES ALL EXPECTATIONS

Only a month old, the SETI@home software has signed up 660,000

volunteers. Together they've contributed over 15,000 years of

computing time to the project, making this the largest distributed

computing experiment in history.
