Hot Topic Exploration Missions
 
Infrared Eyes Set For the Sky
Topic: Missions
08/20/03
A new Sun-circling telescope will reveal the universe with infrared eyes. Unlike what the Hubble Space Telescope shows in visible light, this Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) will look for heat. The longer, infrared wavelengths can penetrate dust and gas clouds that otherwise obscure.

Dinner with da Vinci
Topic: Missions
08/14/03
Leonardo da Vinci dreamed of manned flight. While his genius is secured by paintings and inventions, Leonardo's keen observations of nature led him into astronomy. As with most of his work, his insights were highly original and prescient.

Bridging the Gap: Part I
Topic: Missions
08/13/03
Renowned physicist, Freeman Dyson, has proposed some of the most compelling concepts for space explorations. These range from a theory of life's origins--called the "double-origin hypothesis"--which at the beginning, posits two separate creatures, one replicating and the other metabolizing.

Hubbub on Hubble
Topic: Missions
08/01/03
The Hubble Space Telescope mission is currently planned to continue to year 2010. Final checkout will occur in fourth servicing mission, which is expected to be launched on May 5, 2005. Given this launch baseline, the formal probability of continuous science operations through 2010 is calculated to be 30 percent.

The Cogs of Precognition
Topic: Missions
07/16/03
A recent European Space Agency report details the most promising investments for future technology, based on a studied wish-list borrowed from diverse arts. Their unique methodology prepared more than two hundred technical dossiers about what might be 'the next big thing' along with hints on how to get there.

Long, Strange Trips
Topic: Missions
06/30/03
A quarter century of planetary exploration has pushed the limits of what could even be imagined: comets colliding with planets, rovers driving across martian soil, and footpads resting on venusian crust so hot it could melt lead. Astrobiology Magazine relives the year-by-year timeline, and anticipates the feats yet to come.

Movers and Shakers
Topic: Missions
06/26/03
With the recently announced collaboration of many universities and NASA centers focusing on astrobiology's key questions, the span of inquiry ranges from the deep subsurface to the stars.
