Moonbase Sites Considered.
- Insurance too Expensive for Russian Module
- Mexican satellite Failure
- Getting to Mars on Anti-Matter
- Moonbase Sites Considered
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.
