- Budget Cuts Could Affect Future NASA Missions

FUSE READIED FOR LAUNCH

Next week will finally bring the launch of NASA's Far Ultraviolet

Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) spacecraft on a Boeing Delta II rocket.

FUSE will search the universe for Hydrogen and deuterium, and

hopefully answer a few questions about the Big Bang.

OLDEST KNOWN Galaxy FOUND

Thanks to the 400-inch Keck Observatory in Hawaii, Astronomers have

found the farthest known Galaxy - over 11 billion light years away,

and thought to contain an enormous black hole. It's expected that

even further objects will be discovered by the newly completed, and

more powerful, Gemini telescopes.

QUIKSCAT WEATHER satellite LAUNCHED

Launched from Vandenberg Air Force base on a Titan II rocket, NASA's

QuikScat weather satellite is on its way to a final altitude of 800

kilometers above the Earth. The purpose of the satellite is to map

ocean wind speed and direction.

BUDGET CUTS COULD AFFECT FUTURE NASA MISSIONS

NASA's 2000 budget could be cut by up to $1 billion, potentially

putting two missions in jeopardy. Space Technology 4 (ST4)

"Champollion" and the Mars Surveyor 2001 Lander would be abandoned

if the proposed budget cuts are approved by the House of Congress.
