INSURANCE TOO EXPENSIVE FOR RUSSIAN MODULE

Although it's completed the newest component of the International

Space Station, Russia can afford the $125,000 it will cost to insure

it, and plans to launch without insurance. Perhaps not so wise

considering the recent rash of mislaunches.

MEXICAN satellite FAILURE

Mexican satellite Solidaridad I developed a problem stopping pager

service for clients of the telecommunications company. Pager traffic

has been transferred to other satellites while engineers fix the problem.

GETTING TO MARS ON ANTI-MATTER

NASA scientists are considering this Star Trek fuel for the first manned

mission to Mars. Although such a journey is many years away, the

scientists believe they'll have a working system within 2 years. With

anti-matter, a single gram of fuel would provide the same boost as 23

Space Shuttle tanks.

MOONBASE SITES CONSIDERED

Searching for the best spot for a future Moon base, ESA researchers

believe that a spot near the moon's south pole is ripe for colonization.

Potentially located near patches of Comet ice, and under near continual

sunlight, the spot is a relative oasis.
