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.
