BLANKET COULD BE BLOCKING SURVEYOR'S HINGE

Engineers are trying to determine what's causing the malfunctioning hinge

on the Mars Global Surveyor - the latest suspect is a thermal blanket that

could be restricting the hinge's movement. Whether or not they fix the

problem, Surveyor will start a mapping mission of Mars next week.

MIR MOVING TO HIGHER ORBIT

Plans are being drawn up by Russian space officials to move Mir to a higher

orbit. This indicates Russia's willingness to continue operating the ancient

spacestation, even though NASA is pressuring them to abandon it, and focus

development on the International Space Station.

SCIENTISTS SEARCH FOR EXTREME LIFE

Scientists are travelling to Antarctica to find life living in extreme conditions

around our South Pole - such as creatures that dwell in thermal vents, 4 miles

under the surface of the ocean. The research study is part of the National

Science Foundation's "Life in Extreme Environments" (LExEn) program.

MAY WILL BRING MARS CLOSEST IN 9 YEARS

A rare astronomical event will occur in May - Mars will be the closest it ever

gets, only 52.8 million miles. In addition, the Red planet is in opposition,

which means its face is completely lit up by the Sun. Amateur Astronomers will

be able to see normally obscure features like the polar caps and canyons.
