    >Recent discoveries add yet more variety to the bewildering diversity of
    >protoplanetary disk shapes -- ranging from donuts to spirals -- that
    >astronomers are finding as they study the birthing grounds of planets
    >around other stars.<br />

    >Venus Seeing Double

    >ESA's Venus Express data undoubtedly confirm for the first time the
    >presence of a huge 'double-eye' atmospheric vortex at the planet's south
    >pole. This striking result comes from analysis of the data gathered by the
    >spacecraft during the first orbit around the planet.

    >New technologies are enabling scientists to determine precisely the extent
    >and causes of Earth's short-term wobbling. Like a spinning top, Earth
    >wobbles as it rotates on its axis. In fact, it displays many different
    >wobbling motions, ranging in period from a few minutes to billions of
    >years. Some of these are well studied, like the Chandler wobble of 433 days
    >and the annual wobble, which together can tilt Earth's axis up to 10 meters
    >[30 feet] from its nominal center.

    >When shuttle Discovery launches July 1, it will carry the continuing
    >research of botanist John Kiss to study if and how well plants can be grown
    >in microgravity. Kiss' project is one of only two experiments launched on
    >Discovery that will be performed on the International Space Station at this
    >time.
