HUBBLE GLIMPSES star BIRTH

Stellar nurseries are normally obscured by a cloud of dust and

gas, but the recent birth of a star in the Papillon Nebula in the

Large Magellanic Cloud was revealed to the Hubble Space Telescope,

as its birth was particularly violent, and blew off the

obscuring dust.

CHINA LAUNCHES US SATELLITES

Two additions to the Iridium satellite network were launched on a

Chinese Long March 2C - the 15th consecutive Chinese launch success.

China is contracted to launch 1/3 of Iridium's 66 satellites.

JAPAN DELAYS Moon MISSION

Originally slated for launch later this year, Japanese space officials

have pushed back the launch of the Lunar-A spacecraft for at least

3 years. The spacecraft is designed to orbit the moon, and deploy

penetrator probes into the surface. Upon tests, however, these

probes were found to malfunction when they hit the ground, requiring

the Japanese to redesign the system from scratch.

QUIKSCAT READY FOR LAUNCH

Built in only 12 months, the QuikScat will provide climatologists

and meteorologists with daily pictures of winds above the world's

oceans. The satellite will be launched from Vandenberg Air Force

Base on a Titan II rocked on June 18th.
