After a two-week hiatus caused by a technical problem beyond our
control, the NewsAlert returns today to provide you with a snapshot
of the day's spaceflight and astronomy news. See our Breaking News

PROBE SPOTS NEWLY FORMED STREAKS ON MARTIAN SLOPES
--------------------------------------------------
NASA's Mars Global Surveyor is currently searching for changes that
have occurred in the past martian year on the Red Planet. In a
rugged, ridged terrain north of the Olympus Mons volcano one such
change is avalanching of dust as seen here.

MARS GLOBAL SURVEYOR SPOTS A MID-SUMMER'S DUST DEVIL
----------------------------------------------------
One objective for the Mars Global Surveyor's extended mission is to
continue looking for changes and dynamic events taking place on the
Red Planet. The feature shown here -- a dust devil -- elicited gasps
of excitement among the camera operations staff when it was received.

NASA APPROVES ROBOTIC MISSION TO BLAST A COMET
----------------------------------------------
Imagine intercepting a comet in deep space and using a heavy
projectile to blow a hole in the celestial body, some seven stories
deep and about the size of a football field. In a space exploration
first, NASA's Deep Impact Mission will attempt to use a probe to
collide with a comet in an attempt to peer beneath its surface.

EVIDENCE FOUND FOR ACOUSTIC OSCILLATIONS IN EARLY UNIVERSE
----------------------------------------------------------
Astrophysicists say they have confirmed the existence of acoustic
oscillations generated shortly after the explosive birth of the
universe. Their evidence links the existence of acoustic
oscillations, or wiggles, in the distribution of both the cosmic
microwave background radiation and the distribution of matter
throughout the universe.

SOLAR WIND FIND MAY HELP SPACE WEATHER FORECASTING
--------------------------------------------------
Scientists have confirmed the existence of and imaged "free spirit"
atoms in the solar wind for the first time. They hope to use the
observations to better estimate the arrival time of solar storms and
to estimate the amount of dust left over from the solar system's
birth.
