HUGE GAMMA RAY BURST DETECTED

Astronomers recently observed the largest explosion ever witnessed.

Thought to be caused by the birth of a black hole, or the collision

of two Neutron stars, energy from the explosion traveled nine

billion light years, and was visible by the naked eye.

CHILEAN telescope FACILITY IS NOW OPERATIONAL

Taking advantage of the clear skies over Northern Chile, the first

optical telescope at the Paranal Observatory facility has captured

amazing images of space. Over the next few years, the facility will

have a total of four high-powered Telescopes linked electronically.

NASA TESTS HOW TO EXTRACT OXYGEN FROM MARS ATMOSPHERE

In preparation for a manned flight to Mars, NASA scientists are

testing a device to extract oxygen from the hostile Martian

atmosphere. Once the technology has been perfected, astronauts

will be able to prepare the air they need, without bringing it

from the Earth.

AIR FORCE TESTS AMMONIA-FUELED ENGINE

The Air Force recently tested the ESEX, a new high-powered electric

propulsion system over the Pacific Ocean. Designed to maneuver

satellites in orbit, the arcjet produced a third of a pound of

thrust for just over two minutes.
