STARDUST PASSES MARS PROBES

The Stardust spacecraft has passed the slower moving Mars Climate

Orbiter and Mars Polar Lander spacecraft on the same trajectory to

reach the Red Planet. While the other two probes will enter into

Mars orbit, Stardust will continue on to meet up with Comet Wild 2.

US LAYS GROUNDWORK FOR MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM

US Space Command has allocated $1.8 billion to begin the

development of an advanced missile defense network located in

Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center. The contract is expected

to be awarded in early 2000, and will take cover 15 years

of development.

ESA WILL UPGRADE Ariane 5 PAYLOAD CAPACITY

In order to compete effectively against its international competitors,

the European Space Agency is planning to upgrade the Ariane 5 rocket.

The improvements will eventually allow the rocket to carry 11 tons

of payload into orbit.

COMET MISSION UNDER BUDGET THREAT

Budget pressures at NASA could force cancellation of an ambitious

expedition to land a spacecraft onto a Comet - a mission called Space

Technology 4. The project is in jeopardy because of launch delays

of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory and repairs to the Hubble

Space Telescope.
