HUBBLE GYRO FAILS

Known to be on its last legs for almost 3 months, an ailing Hubble

gyro has finally failed completely. This leaves Hubble with three

functioning gyros - the minimum it requires to point accurately. Astronauts

on the Space Shuttle will replace all the gyroscopes in a planned service

mission in October.

FIRST CONVERTED ICBM satellite LAUNCH

Surrey satellite Technology's latest microsatellite, the UoSAT-12, was

launched today on a de-militarized Russian ICBM SS18 (inter-continental

ballistic missile). This is the first launch of this repurposed cold war

weapon, which easily lifted the 350kg payload into a 650km orbit.

DELTA III LAUNCH RESCHEDULED

Boeing has announced that it will make another attempt to launch the Lockheed

Martin-built Orion 3 telecommunications satellite on board a Delta III rocket

on Wednesday. This will be the second Delta III launch - the first exploded

just over a minute into its flight.

MARS SURVEYOR 2001 TO CARRY SUNDIAL

Inscribed with the motto "Two Worlds, One Sun", a sundial carried by the Mars

Surveyor 2001 will be landed on the surface of Mars in early 2002. Images of

the sundial, which was designed with ideas submitted by children to NASA,

will be transmitted back to Earth, and available on the Internet.
