DISCOVERY RETURNS SAFELY TO EARTH

Space Shuttle Discovery touched down early Sunday morning at the Kennedy

Space Center in a rare night landing - only the 11th time a Space Shuttle

landed in darkness. The total mission length was 10 days and consisted primarily

of restocking the International Space Station.

3-D Images Reveal Moon's South Pole

Using the NASA's Deep Space Network of radar antennas, Cornell and JPL researchers

have revealed the moon's southern pole. Many craters near the pole are never lit

by the sun, and it's theorized they contain frozen water ice which could be of

use to future Moon colonists. This area will be the target for the Lunar

Prospector's final impact with the moon.

Shuttle Releases Disco Ball Satellite

Before its descent back to earth, Space Shuttle Discovery released the Starshine,

a small ball covered with 900 highly-polished mirrors. 25,000 schools around the

world are expected to track the Starshine's orbit before it re-enters the atmosphere

and burns up eight months from now.

Russia Can't Afford Safe Landing for Mir

Now that Russia has announced they won't be able to afford to keep Mir aloft,

officials have admitted they don't even have enough money to ensure it doesn't

hit an uninhabited part of the Earth when it crashes. Controlling the descent

would require several Progress cargo ships dock with Mir and guide the station

with their engines.
