MOON HAS A SODIUM TAIL

Astronomers have discovered a sodium-gas "tail" that stretches away

from the Moon for at least half a million miles. Unsure exactly what's

causing this tail, Astronomers theorize that it might be caused

micrometeorites striking the moon, with the sodium pulled into the

tail by the Earth's gravity.

COMPUTER PROGRAMMED TO DETECT ALIEN LIFE

NASA is developing a computer program which they believe will assist

the search for extraterrestrial life. Designed to recognize every

variant of microbial life on Earth, the program would be incorporated

into future missions to Mars, such as a rover that searches for life

by cracking open rocks.

RECENT SOLAR EJECTION WORRIED ASTRONOMERS

For a few hours last Tuesday, Astronomers didn't know if a massive

coronal ejection, containing superheated plasma, would strike the

Earth. After first witnessing the ejection, Astronomers used the

Internet to compare current images of the Sun from around the world

and decided that a worldwide alert wasn't necessary.

WIRE FAILURE CAUSED BY POWER GLITCH

An investigation into the failure of the Wide-Field Infrared Explorer

(WIRE) satellite has concluded that a surge in a circuit led to the

failure of the satellite. When the satellite was turned on, the surge

caused it to prematurely blow the bolts on a sunscreen which protected

a Hydrogen tank. The unprotected Hydrogen sublimated, spinning the

satellite out of control.
