  • NASA's international partners in the International Space Station project are very concerned about plans to scale back the station. At a meeting last week in Washington one official from Europe said he had difficulties persuading European leaders to remain in the project. A Canadian official said that changes in the station project proposed by the Young committee report last month would require "government-level consultations" that have not taken place.
  • Reddish patches on the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa could be explained by bacteria, New Scientist magazine reported last week. One researcher has found that the spectra of some strains of radiation-resistant bacteria match the spectra of the surface of the moon. Most scientists currently believe that a mixture of salts in the ice create the reddish tinge, but there is no way to confirm this short of sending a mission to the moon.
