NASA ANNOUNCES NEW Astrobiology GROUP

NASA has set up a new Astrobiology institute to assist in

the search for exterrestrial life. They're not necessarily looking

for space aliens, just any form of life off our planet - even

single celled organisms would be well worth the effort.

BAD WEATHER MAY DELAY SHUTTLE LAUNCH

Space Shuttle Discovery may remain on the pad, and miss its current

launch window because of poor weather. Originally scheduled for

launch on Thursday, the Shuttle was already pelted by a severe

hailstorm, and had to be repaired. This will be the first Shuttle

launch in over 5 months.

DEEP SPACE 1 TESTS INTERRUPTED

Software anomalies unexpectedly interrupted tests of Deep

Space 1's automated capabilities. Although NASA engineers

consider the tests to be largely successful, they plan to

conduct more to complete the experiment.

NASA BUDGET APPROVED... ALMOST

The US House of Representatives has approved NASA's three-year

operating budget with a couple of exceptions: the TransHab module,

and Vice President Al Gore's Triana Space probe - both of which

were denied funding by the House.

NEW Moon DISCOVERED FOR URANUS

While examining old photographs from Voyager, an Astronomer has

discovered a new Moon orbiting Uranus. Only 25 miles across, the

moon, currently has the boring name of 1986 U10, but it will soon

be given a Shakespearean character name - a tradition for Uranus' moons.

TERRIERS satellite RUNS OUT OF JUICE

The student-built TERRIERS satellite has drained its battery since

it was launched on Tuesday. This is because the satellite wasn't able

to orient its solar panels in the direction of the Sun to recharge.

Engineers are attempting to recover it before declaring the launch

a write-off.

HUBBLE CATCHES GIANT STORM ON MARS

The Hubble Space Telescope has recently captured images of a giant

storm raging across the surface of Mars. Over 1,000 miles across,

the storm is surprisingly Earthlike, in composition, unlike the dust

storms discovered by the Viking orbiter over 20 years ago.

ASTEROID 1999 AN10 WILL COME VERY CLOSE IN 2027

Although it was recently announced that asteroid 1999 AN10 may strike

the Earth in 2039, Astronomers have been calculating and recalculating

its trajectory. Recent data suggests that 1999 AN10 will streak past

the Earth as close as 38,000 miles in 2027, but it's still unclear if

gravitational effect of the Earth will cause the later impact.
