HARDY BACTERIA PROVES LIFE HAS FEW LIMITS
In order to understand how life could exist on other
worlds in our Solar System, scientists are studying the
limits of life on Earth. Many creatures are thriving in
environments which are similar to those found on other worlds,
such as Europa and Mars.
NASA READIES LANDSAT 7 FOR LAUNCH
Capable of producing extremely high-quality images of
the Earth, the Landsat 7 satellite is designed to monitor
environmental changes, from urban growth to deforestation.
The satellite is set to launch from Vandenberg Air Force
Base in California on April 15th.
CAPTURING meteorites IN FLIGHT
Similar to the Stardust's aerogel used to catch Comet
debris, earthbound NASA engineers are using a weather
balloon and xerogel micrometeorite collector to capture
leonid meteorites as they hurtle through our atmosphere.
ORION 3 WILL LAUNCH ON BOEING DELTA 3
Second time's the charm. After an aborted inaugural
flight carrying the Galaxy X satellite, the new Boeing
Delta 3 is ready to try again - this time with the Orion 3
satellite from Loral Space & Communications.
