HUBBLE VIEWS STORMY URANUS
New views of Uranus by the Hubble Space Telescope have shown the
planet to be colourful and stormy. A timelapse movie created from
Hubble's images shows moons circling, rings wobbling, and storms
raging across the surface of the distant planet.
MARS SURVEYOR DEPLOYS HIGH-GAIN ANTENNA
Although the Mars Surveyor has already sent back stunning images from
the surface of the Red Planet, communication with the probe is about
to improve, as it deploys its high-gain antenna. Using this and its other
instruments, the spacecraft is mapping the surface of the planet,
determining potential future landings sites.
SEA LAUNCH satellite ACHIEVES HIGH ORBIT
With a successful test launch of a dummy satellite to an orbit of 23,000
miles above the Earth, the Sea Launch is primed to begin commercial operations.
SIX MONTH DELAY BETWEEN SHUTTLE LAUNCHES
Because of Russian delays and a stalled telescope, NASA engineers will have
to wait a total of 167 days between its last Space Shuttle launch and the
next, scheduled for May 20th. There's only been one longer delay, 975 days,
after the Challenger accident in 1986.
