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.
