MIR WILL FINALLY BE SHUT DOWN

Unable the find the additional funding they need, Russian officials have

decided to scrap Mir. The current cosmonauts will leave the station for the

last time in August, and it will remain unattended as its orbit decays into

the atmosphere, finally burning up sometime in August.

SUN'S orbit AROUND THE Galaxy CALCULATED

Using a precise radio telescope, Astronomers have calculated exactly how long

it takes for the Sun to make one revolution around the Milky Way: 226 million

years. Last time the Sun was in this position, Dinosaurs roamed the planet. To

make their calculations, Astronomers used Sagitarius A - , a star believed to be

exactly at the center of the galaxy.

HUBBLE CAPTURES ENTIRE star LIFECYCLE

Recent photographs from the Hubble Space Telescope show a region of space that

displays all stages of star evolution. The image is of the nebula NCG 3603, and

it contains a blue supergiant star called Sher 25 surrounded by rings of

interstellar gas.

EARTH MICROBES SURVIVE IN MARS CONDITIONS

A microbe discovered deep in the ocean near hot vents has been found to be able

to thrive in Martian conditions - an environment hostile to almost every kind of

life on Earth. The bacteria doesn't require oxygen, but converts Hydrogen and

nitrogen into methane gas. Not only does this discovery raise hopes of finding

life on Mars, but also of future techniques to make Mars more Earthlike, by

introducing life to the planet.
