SPACE STATION NEARLY STRUCK BY DEBRIS

NASA controllers attempted to fire the International Space Station's

rockets to move it out of the way of a piece of Russian space junk

which was going to pass too close for comfort. Unfortunately, the

computer program designed to execute the maneuver crashed the ISS

for 90 minutes. Fortunately the debris missed the station by a

safe margin.

MIR WILL HAVE ONE LAST CREW

Although they're still planning for Mir's fiery destruction later this

year, Russian space officials have announced they'll be sending one final

crew to the doomed station. It's still unknown how the Russians will be

able to guide Mir's 100 tonnes safely back to Earth and crash into

an uninhabited area.

GEMINI DEMONSTRATES ITS POWER ON PLUTO

The new Gemini telescope in Hawaii's first target was the planet

Pluto, which it resolved with a level of quality equal to the Hubble

Space Telescope. This telescope, with its Chilean twin has 10

times the resolution power of any telescope on Earth.
