Oldest Known Galaxy Discovered.
- Search Begins for Mercury Capsule
- International Space Station will Be Noisy
- Oldest Known Galaxy Discovered
- TekStar Wins Solar Cell Contract
SEARCH BEGINS FOR Mercury CAPSULE
Undersea salvage experts are looking for the Mercury 4 space capsule that
almost drowned Astronaut Gus Grissom almost 40 years ago. It's expected that
the capsule will be found at a depth of over 15,000 in the Atlantic Ocean.
INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION WILL BE NOISY
The latest Russian component of the International Space Station will exceed
noise level requirements of 50-55 decibels. Parts of the new Zarya service
module will be as loud as 72 decibels, making warnings difficult to hear,
and possibly causing hearing damage.
OLDEST KNOWN Galaxy DISCOVERED
Peering out to the edge of the universe, the Hubble Space Telescope has
discovered the oldest known galaxy, which the discoverer has named after
his sister - "Sharon". Although it's very old, the Galaxy looks young,
because the light has taken 13 billion years to reach Earth.
TEKSTAR WINS SOLAR CELL CONTRACT
TekStar has won a lucrative contract to supply Lockheed Martin's new
satellite systems with solar power cells. TekStar previously supplied
solar cells for Mars Pathfinder and the current Deep Space 1 missions.
