HUBBLE CAPTURES IMAGES OF THE MOON

Designed to catch light from the dimmest stars, the immense light-gathering

power of the Hubble Space Telescope was used to capture images from a target

much closer to home - the Moon. Hubble was aimed at a 93km wide impact

crater, where it produced photographs of crisp detail.

DARWINIAN PRINCIPLES APPLIED TO SPACE EXPLORATION

The current opinion of NASA - that hordes of small space probes are more

cost-effective than larger, expensive spacecraft - could be under serious

criticism, thanks to a new evolutionary computer program designed to breed

spacecraft designs to determine the most cost effective probes.

NASA APPROVES GORE'S satellite IDEA

NASA has approved the development of a controversial satellite called

Triana, designed to provide ongoing footage of the Earth from one of

the Lagrange points. The controversy stems from the fact that the idea

for this $75 Million satellite was provided by Vice-President Gore - even

though there have been many recent NASA budget cuts.

CASSINI SUFFERS RENEWED BACKLASH

The atomic-powered Cassini spacecraft is back for a gravity boost

from the Earth before it speeds its way onto Saturn. This concerns

nuclear activists, who fear that the spacecraft may collide with the

Earth and spray us with radioactivity.
