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.
