MERCURY CAPSULE FOUND!
A Florida salvage operation has found the prize they were searching
for: Gus Grissom's Mercury space capsule. The Liberty Bell 7 was found
3 miles under the ocean, 300 miles off shore. The salvagers will return
within a few weeks to raise the capsule to the surface.
TEXAN CONSIDERS CARIBBEAN SPACEPORT
Texas entrepreneur, Andy Beal, is investigating the potential of developing
a remote Caribbean island into a new spaceport, capable of launching rockets
as large as the Ariane 5. The plans are controversial; however, as the
island is a key nesting ground for Caribbean seabirds.
TITAN MISHAPS AFFECTING OTHER LAUNCHES
Because of the three Titan IVB launch disasters, the Air Force has
postponed the launch of the Delta III as well. This is because both
rockets share the same upper stage engine system, which caused satellites
to be placed into incorrect orbits.
LANDSAT PICTURES ARRIVE
Only newly-launched, Landsat 7 is already delivering high-resolution
images of our planet. The satellite has twice the resolution of its
predecessors, and will be able to map changes in the environment
with great detail.
