SURVEYOR TRANSMITTING, BUT STILL NOT FIXED

Unable to fix the malfunctioning hinge on the Mars Global Surveyor's

high-gain boom antenna, engineers have turned the entire spacecraft to

face Earth. The probe has been pulled out of "contingency mode" and

NASA engineers will attempt to restore the hinge later this week.

HUBBLE VIEWS IMAGES OF IO

Recent photographs from the Hubble Space Telescope have shown images of Io,

one of Jupiter's moons crossing the surface of the planet. Another image

shows a Volcano spewing from the surface of the Jovian moon.

ARTISTIC satellite WILL BE LAUNCHED ON 50,000 YEAR JOURNEY

Developed to symbolize mankind's passion for art, a French artist is

creating a unique spacecraft, which will travel on a 50,000 year journey

orbiting the Earth, and then reenter our atmosphere. On board will be a

D-ROM containing messages from people interested in the project. (Hope

they have CD-ROMs in 50,000 years).

LIGHT-POWERED SAUCER A REALITY

Professor Leik Myrabo is working on what he believes will be the next

wave of spacecraft design - a saucer that rises to orbit powered by a

laser beam. If his theories are correct, it may reduce the cost of

launching into orbit by a factor of 1,000.
