MEDIA RELATIONS OFFICE JET PROPULSION LABORATORY CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION PASADENA, CALIF. 91109 TELEPHONE (818) 354-5011 http://www.jpl.nasa.gov Contact: Mary Beth Murrill FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 24, 1998 ASTEROID FINDER NAMED TO WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY HALL OF FAME Asteroid finder and astronomer Eleanor F. Helin of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, has been named to the Women in Science and Technology International (WITI) Hall of Fame, an award that honors women in science and technology worldwide. Helin will be honored at ceremonies to be held Thursday, June 25, at 7 p.m., during the WITI 1998 Technology Summit in Santa Clara, CA. The largest-ever conference of top women in technology, the WITI 1998 Technology Summit will draw more than 3,500 technologists and scientists from around the world. WITI Hall of Fame was launched in 1996 to recognize, honor, and promote the outstanding contributions women make to the scientific and technological communities and society at large. Inductees are chosen by an independent panel of judges. Donna Shirley, manager of JPL's Mars Exploration Program, was inducted into the WITI Hall of Fame last year, and is a featured speaker at Thursday's ceremonies. Helin has been active in planetary science and astronomy for more than three decades at the California Institute of Technology and JPL, a division of Caltech managed for NASA. She is the principal investigator for the Near Earth Asteroid Tracking (NEAT) program, a collaborative effort of NASA, JPL and the U.S. Air Force which has already detected more than 26,000 objects including 30 near-Earth asteroids. In the early 1970s, Helin initiated the Palomar Planet- Crossing Asteroid Survey from Caltech's Palomar Observatory in Southern California, resulting in the discovery of thousands of asteroids of all types including 100 near-Earth asteroids and 20 comets. One of the most significant discoveries was that of asteroid 2026 Aten, the first asteroid found to have an orbit smaller than the Earth. Another of her asteroid discoveries, KD 1992, was recently named the new target for a flyby by to be conducted in July 1999 by the NASA/JPL Deep Space 1 spacecraft, due for launch this November. Helin is a recipient of NASA's Exceptional Service Medal and the 1997 JPL Award for Excellence for her leadership of the NEAT program. The International Astronomical Union named asteroid 3267 Helin in her honor. Helin and her husband reside in Thousand Oaks, CA. ##### Hа сегодня все, пока! =SANA=

The briefing will originate from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), in Pasadena, CA. New scientific findings paint two strikingly different pictures of the role of water on the red planet and yield surprising conclusions about the composition of rocks at the landing site. The briefing will include an updated 360-degree, "fish-eye lens" view of the landing site featuring a representation of the full path of the Sojourner rover, in both still and video formats. Briefing participants will be: o Dr. Matthew Golombek, Mars Pathfinder project scientist, JPL o Dr. Joy Crisp, investigation scientist on Pathfinder's alpha proton X-ray spectrometer team, JPL o Stephen Metzger, graduate student at the University of Nevada, Reno o Dr. Diana Blaney, planetary scientist, JPL o Dr. Richard Zurek, JPL project scientist on the upcoming Mars Surveyor 1998 missions NASA TV is carried on satellite GE-2, transponder 9C, 85 degrees West longitude, vertical polarization, frequency 3880 MHz, audio 6.8 MHz.

    Дата: 29 июня 1998 (1998-06-29) От: Alexander Bondugin Тема: Mars Global Surveyor Update - June 26, 1998 Привет всем! Вот, свалилось из Internet... Mars Global Surveyor Project Status Report Overview Friday, 26 June 1998 The Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft continues in good health as it completes its 388th orbit of Mars in an 11.6 hour period elliptical orbit. In this Science Phasing Orbit period, science observations are made during every orbit. At the last turn-on of the Thermal Emission Spectrometer instrument earlier this week, the primary neon reference lamp for the spectrometer did not come on, so the instrument is using only the bolometer (temperature measurement) mode. The backup lamp is being saved for use in important science observations later in the summer and for mapping next year. The project team is preparing for the operational readiness tests late in July and early August. These tests will demonstrate the team's capabilities to perform aerobraking as the MGS orbital period gets shorter and shorter when aerobraking starts again on September 14th. The current orbital period will be reduced to slightly under 2 hours during the coming fall and early winter. At the same time the MGS orbit period is growing shorter, and aerobraking management intensity will be growing, the Mars Surveyor Operations project team will be taking on the responsibility of managing the flight operations of the Mars Climate Orbiter which launches on December 10th, and the Mars Polar Lander which launches on January 3rd.

    Дата: 29 июня 1998 (1998-06-29) От: Alexander Bondugin Тема: Physics News Update - June 25, 1998 Привет всем! Вот, свалилось из Internet... PHYSICS NEWS UPDATE The American Institute of Physics Bulletin of Physics News Number 379 June 25, 1998 by Phillip F. Schewe and Ben Stein NEAREST EXTRA-SOLAR PLANET. The existence of a planet around the star Gliese 876, only 15 light years distant from Earth, was announced this week by planeteer Geoffrey Marcy of San Francisco State University at a meeting in Victoria, British Columbia. The star, whose presence is inferred not from direct observation but by the wobble it imparts to the star, has a mass about 1.6 that of Jupiter. Gliese itself only has a mass of about one third that of our sun, making it the lightest known star to have a planet. The planet circles the star every 61 days at a radius of one -fifth the Earth-Sun distance. The discovery was soon confirmed by other astronomers. (Science News, 27 June 1998.) Still other extra-solar planets (perhaps a half dozen) will be presented by several observing teams at a meeting a week from now in Santa Barbara. (Science NOW, 24 June 1998.) LIFE EXTINCTIONS BY COSMIC RAY JETS. Several reasons have been put forward to explain past periods of mass extinction on the Earth. An asteroid, for example, is thought to have killed off the dinosaurs in the Cretaceous/Tertiary era 60 million years ago. A new theory by physicists at the Technion in Israel suggests that jets of cosmic rays coming from the collapse of neutron stars or the merger of two such stars could initiate a lethal batch of muons in our atmosphere. They argue that the ensuing ionizing radiation might have affected the biosphere in two ways---by killing many species outright and by causing the sort of mutations that might result in the abrupt appearance of many new species in the aftermath of the of the jet event. Furthermore, the coming of the cosmic rays might be heralded a few days before by the arrival of a gamma ray burst (GRB), presumably from the same energetic source. The mechanism behind GRBs is itself now the subject of intense astronomical scrutiny. Arnon Dar et al., Physical Review Letters, 29 June; Arnon Dar, arnon@physics. technion.ac.il, 011-972-4-829-3529; science journalists can obtain the article from AIP.) THE MOON WAS THE FIRST OBJECT OF PURE SCIENCE, according to Martin Gutzwiller of IBM (gutzwil@watson.ibm.com). The Babylonians (c1000 BC) recorded the comings and goings of the Moon arithmetically without understanding the geometry. The Greeks (c200 BC) went further; they viewed the solar system as sitting in an immense vacuum surrounded by the fixed stars. But even the clever Greeks knew nothing about the underlying physics of the solar system. This fell to Newton (1687) in the "Principia," and the 18th century mathematician/physicists such as Laplace. These thinkers proposed the principle of universal gravitation and tried to check it out on the complicated Moon-Earth-Sun system. The study of this oldest of three-body problems is the true subject of Gutzwiller's article in the April 1998 issue of Review of Modern Physics. In many physics problems, the dynamics of two interacting bodies (a planet and a star or two electrical charges, say) is easy. Add a third body and things get complicated, indeed chaotic, which is why Newton and his 18-century followers were largely stumped in their efforts to nail down the Earth-Sun-Moon dynamics. Gutzwiller compares the study of this problem with the history of particle physics: the amassing of cross sections, branching ratios and other particle properties (the kinds of things published in tables) corresponds to the "Babylonian phase," while the advent of the standard model represents the "Greek phase." The third, or Newtonian, age, in which the masses of the quarks and fundamental parameters such as the fine structure constant will be explained, has not yet arrived.
