- Balloon to Catch Halley's comet Particles
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.
