LOVELL RADIO telescope RESUMES SEARCH FOR LIFE IN SPACE
The damage from September's Hurricane George has been repaired,
and the University of Manchester's Lovell radio telescope in Puerto
Rico has resumed operations searching for signs of extra-terrestrial life.
CRIPPLED HUBBLE GLIMPSES DISTANT GALAXIES
Astronomers have published recent snapshots taken by the Hubble Space
Telescope of some nearby galaxies. Mostly obscured by dust, the (now
damaged) Near Infrared Camera cut through the haze and delivered spectacular
images of galactic starbirth.
CHINESE satellite LAUNCHES FROM KAZAKHSTAN
A Chinese satellite, the Asiasat 3S, launched aboard a Russian-built Proton-K
rocket from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The satellite will transmit
television and communication signals throughout Southeast Asia.
SPACE STATION CREW MAY LAUNCH EARLIER THAN EXPECTED
NASA is considering launching a permanent crew to the International Space
Station as earlier as October of this year, only a few months after the major
living portions of the Station have been made livable. This launch date
depends on the Russian crew quarters, which are still incomplete because
of inadequate funding.
