Sea Launch Prepares For First Blastoff
Floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the Sea Launch (an
oil rig in a previous life) is preparing for its first test launch
on Saturday. Positioned precisely at the Earth's equator, the
Sea Launch will take maximum advantage of the Earth's spin to
decrease fuel costs.
Global Surveyor Reveals Impressive Features on Mars
Finally in orbit around the Red Planet, the Mars Global Surveyor
is starting to send back stunning images from the surface, including
craters, strings of elliptical pits, and volcanoes.
Rocket Launches Causing Damage to the Atmosphere
Alexei Yablokov, head of the Center for Environmental Policy in
Moscow has recently stated that up to 50% of Ozone Layer damage
could be caused by rocket launches, which could lead to an
environmental catastrophe in the next 20-30 years.
Scientists Challenge Big Bang Theory
Australian scientists have developed a technique they believe will
help them find stars flung out of Galaxies by gravitational
interactions. They've already found 160 so far, and suspect that
this number indicates that there may be an equal number of stars
outside of Galaxies as those that lie within them.
