Sea Launch Successful
The ocean-based Sea Launch, designed to launch rockets from the
mid-Pacific, had its first successful test on Saturday - a Russian
Zenit-3SL rocket equipped with a dummy satellite. The rocket
lifted from the launch pad, and flew up to an altitude of 1,200
miles where it separated from the satellite.
Astronomers Discover asteroid with Moon
Astronomers have discovered a tiny Moon orbiting the asteroid 45
Eugenia. Given the romantic name of S/1998 (45) 1, the Moon is
guessed to be no larger than 10 km long, and orbits the larger
asteroid every 4.7 days.
MIT Students Develop Business Plan for Mars Trip
Using the Internet to coordinate their activities, a group of MIT
students have developed a business plan for an expedition to Mars.
The students are taking part in a competition sponsored by NASA, who
plans to incorporate the strategies into its own Mars mission.
NASA Plans Russian Hardware Purchases
NASA plans to spend $100 million of this year's operating budget to
purchase hardware from Russian manufacturers. The bulk of this money
will be invested into Soyuz space station, which will serve as a
crew return vehicle until the X-38's larger implementation is completed.
