- Air Force Pronounces Milstar Officially Dead
WINDS ON Jupiter GO SUPERSONIC
Astronomers have been investigating the clouds on Jupiter and have
discovered a number of unique features: storms circling the poles reach
supersonic speeds and a giant plasmasheet created from the interaction
between Jupiter and Io.
SHUTTLE TANK DAMAGED BY HAIL
A heavy hailstorm over the weekend damaged an insulation cover on
the Space Shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank. Although the damage
can be repaired, there are several gouges in areas unreachable while
the Shuttle is on the launch pad. NASA may have to delay the launch.
ALIEN MESSAGES COULD BE TIMED TO GALACTIC EVENTS
Astronomers from the SETI Institute believe that aliens trying to contact
us may time their message with some kind of dramatic cosmic event, such
as a supernova or gamma ray burst. They're keeping their radio Telescopes
tuned to the location, just after such an event.
AIR FORCE PRONOUNCES MILSTAR OFFICIALLY DEAD
After almost two weeks of effort to repair Milstar's botched orbit, Air
Force officials have thrown in the towel. The spacecraft was raised to a
stable altitude of 2,781 miles, the fuel was drained, and it was turned
off. $800 million officially down the drain.
