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.
