Why Isn't the Universe Anti-Matter?

Due to technical problems, there hasn't been an update of universe Today

until now, so this is another double-sized issue. We should have all the

issues wrapped up by the end of the week, and then it'll be back to the

normal schedule. Thanks for you patience.

Now, onto the news...

ANOTHER asteroid belt COULD BE CLOSE

British Astronomers feel that there's a possibility that there's

another asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Earth. Possibly

ejected from the more stable belt between Mars and Jupiter, these

could pose a significant threat to our planet.

LOCKHEED MARTIN ORDERS INQUIRY INTO LAUNCH FAILURES

Hot on the heels of the official US Air Force investigation into the

recent rash of launch failures, Lockheed CEO Peter Teets has ordered

wide-ranging review of the company's launch programs. The names of

dozen members of the investigation group will be announced next week.

WHY ISN'T THE universe ANTI-MATTER?

Scientists around the world are planning a group of experiments to

better determine the nature of anti-matter. Particle accelerators in

California, Chicago, and Japan will each perform experiments to

investigate the key differences between matter and anti-matter,

which could answer why the universe is mostly made of matter,

and not the reverse.

ALL US ROCKETS GROUNDED

After a terrible string of launch failures - six failures in nine

months - the US space industry has undertaken a detailed investigation

to learn what could be causing the problems. The failures have cost US

taxpayers billions of dollars. No further launches will happen until the

investigations are complete.

CHILDREN WILL PILOT ROVER ON MARS

Mars Surveyor 2001 will contain a rover piloted by a group of children on

Earth. Over 100 children will be selected for this project, some of whom

will be able to pilot the rover, and others who'll design micro-experiments

attached to the outside of the rover.

PINK black holes DISCOVERED

Australian Astronomers have discovered a strange category of black holes

which appear pink in telescopes. What's causing this pink glow is unknown,

but the Astronomers suspect it has something to do with the violent effect

black holes have on nearby stars as they suck streams of gas away.

CONTROLLERS ATTEMPTING TO RECOVER ORION 3

Stuck in the wrong orbit, Orion 3 is next to useless, and may re-enter the

atmosphere and burn up. Ground controllers are attempting to raise the satellite,

and put it into a stable (although still useless) orbit. Investigations also

continue to determine why the launch failed.

RUSSIAN SERVICE MODULE GETS A NEW NAME

The Russian Service Module for the International Space Station was recently

renamed to Zvezda, which is Russian for "star". This follows the tradition of

colorful names for all the ISS modules, and so Zvezda joins renamed Unity,

Zarya, and Kibo.
