- Warp Drive Becomes Theoretically Possible

- Globalstar Launch Delayed Again

TEAM ASSIGNED TO INVESTIGATE LAUNCH FAILURES

An independent team of experts are investigating Boeing's recent

launch failures, seperate from the government investigations. The

team will review the Delta, Sea Launch, and Upper Intertial Stage,

and provide their report by the fall.

ELECTRICAL PROBLEM MAY HAVE CAUSED IKONOS FAILURE

It seems that aerospace companies do nothing but post-mortems these

days. Lockheed Martin believes that the IKONOS 1 rocket launched from

an Athena II rocket never reached orbit because of an electrical problem,

which stopped a protective cover from being ejected at the proper time.

With the additional load of the cover, the rocket didn't have enough

energy to reach orbit.

WARP DRIVE BECOMES THEORETICALLY POSSIBLE

It's been quite a controversy: is a warp drive possible? Physicists

have taken both sides of this argument, with one stating that it'll

take more energy than available in the Universe, and now, and new

paper by Chris Van Den Broeck which states that it might require

much less energy.

GLOBALSTAR LAUNCH DELAYED AGAIN

As predicted, terrible weather in Florida has delayed the latest launch

of Globalstar satellites on a Boeing Delta II rocket. The launch has

been postponed until Thursday, with two launch windows to improve

their chances of actually launching.
