INCORRECT SOFTWARE COULD HAVE CAUSED MILSTAR FAILURE

A new report from Aviation Week and Space Technology proposes that

faulty software loaded onto the Titan IV rocked caused the recent

launch failure of the Air Force's Milstar satellite.

Brown Dwarfs Could Have Weather

Astronomers believe they've found evidence that brown dwarfs have

weather conditions, such as clouds and wind. In detecting the change

in brightness over these short hours on these failed stars, Astronomers

believe they're seeing changing cloud patterns.

SOFTWARE WILL ALLOW GALILEO TO MAKE Callisto FLYBY

NASA engineers have upgraded Galileo's software to enable it to make a

close flyby to Callisto, Jupiter's moon. Previous attempts to visit

Europa were disrupted when glitches in the software forced the spacecraft

into safe mode, blinding it as it flew past the moon.

BALLOON TO CATCH Halley's comet PARTICLES

NASA scientists are planning to launch a high-altitude weather balloon

to catch particles of Halley's Comet. The balloon will rise to an altitude

of 120,000 ft and deploy its xerogel dust collector, which will capture

the particles as they enter the atmosphere.
