      WHAT'S THAT? PROBE SEES STRANGE SURFACES ON MARS
      ------------------------------------------------
      Sometimes Mars Global Surveyor images show things that look very
      bizarre. Unique among the images is a suite of pictures from
      northwestern Hellas Planitia, such as the example shown here.

      SPACE STATION ALPHA CREW GEARS UP FOR SHUTTLE VISIT
      ---------------------------------------------------
      An instrument used to measure the electrical charge that builds up on
      the international space station as it plows through the tenuous
      extreme upper atmosphere indicates spacewalking construction workers
      need not fear potentially dangerous discharges.

      MIR'S NATURAL DECAY MAKES CONTROLLED REENTRY TRICKY
      ---------------------------------------------------
      The Russian Mir space station is slowly loosing its orbital altitude
      as ground controllers prepare for the abandoned outpost's de-orbiting
      this March. Space officials say the wild fluctuations in the density
      of Earth's atmosphere make it more difficult to predict the exact
      reentry date.

      A chapter in the history of astrophysics quietly came to an end this
      week when NASA shut down the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE)
      spacecraft, a mission that gave astronomers their first glimpse of
      the universe at a key chapter of the electromagnetic spectrum.
