MOON TO ECLIPSE ALDEBARAN

Astronomers are preparing for April 18th, when the Moon will

pass in front of Aldebaran, one of the brightest stars in the

sky. The Midwestern US will be late evening for the occultation,

making it dark enough to see without a telescope.

SPIRAL star FOUND

Probably caused by the gravitational interaction of two stars

orbiting closely, Astronomers have found a spiral-shaped star

called Wolf-Rayet 104. The star burns much hotter than average

and ejects a spiral stream of superheated dust around it.

FUSE satellite READIED FOR LAUNCH

The Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) has been transferred

to NASA's Hanger AE at Cape Canaveral for prelaunch preparations.

Expected to launch on May 20th, the satellite will help answer

questions about the origin of the universe by examining the

presence of Hydrogen and deuterium.

FINAL Titan LAUNCH

Lockheed Martin is preparing to launch its final Titan IV rocket from

Cape Canaveral on April 9th. The rocket will carry an Air Force early

warning satellite into space, after which the launch facility will be

deactivated, and prepared for Lockheed's newer Atlas V rocket.
