HUBBLE FINDS GRAVITATIONAL LENS

The Hubble Space Telescope has found a series of gravitational

lenses - caused when the gravity of a massive object focuses the

light of an object behind it. The lenses can take the shape of

strange patterns, arcs, rings and crosses, and can be used by

astronomers to calculate universe parameters.

CHINESE PLANNING MANNED LAUNCH

The Chinese Space Agency is planning to join other countries in sending

astronauts into orbit. Official announcements claim that development

of its space program is well ahead of schedule, with an unmanned launch

as early as next year, with a manned launch shortly after.

MARS EXPRESS BUDGET APPROVED

A five-year budget for an unmanned probe to Mars has been approved

by European Governments. Equipped with a series of scientific instruments,

the spacecraft will help determine if Mars has water - and with it, the

possibility of life.

be able to join the search when the software is released on these

platforms Monday.
