A RARE SECOND blue moon TO OCCUR WEDNESDAY

Today marks an astronomical rarity - the second blue moon of the

year. Blue moons look no different from regular full moons, but

happen when the Moon is full twice in the same month. Two blue

moons in a year happens only four times a century.

EU CONSIDERS FINANCING satellite NAVIGATION SYSTEM

The European Union is considering developing its own network of

navigational satellites, called Galileo. By developing this network,

they hope to relive their dependence on American and Russian

technology. The system is expected to cost 2.9 billion euros,

and will be complete by 2008.

LAUNCH FACILITIES MEET TO DISCUSS CAPACITY

Aging equipment, packed schedules, and inefficient infrastructure

were just some of the problems identified at the recent House

Science Committee meetings held earlier this week. In some cases,

launch sites are using technology that dates back to the early 1950s.
