    Science/Astronomy:

    * Celestial Soulmate? Jupiter-like Planet Found in Solar System Similar to Ours
    http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/jupiterlike_planet_030703.html

    An international team of planet hunters have found the closest thing yet to a solar system similar to our own out in space; a Jupiter-like planet orbiting its parent star in a Jupiter-like orbit.

    * The Road Ahead: SETI and the NASA Astrobiology Institute
    http://www.space.com/searchforlife/seti_chyba_astro_030703.html

    In November 2002, NASA published the Astrobiology Roadmap as a guide for its multi-disciplinary exploration of the origins, evolution, distribution and future of life in the universe.

    * Study: Cosmic Brake Slows Spin of Pulsars
    http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/pulsar_brakes_030703.html

    Pulsars are the fastest spinning stars in the universe -- rotating at hundreds of revolutions per second _ and they could go twice as fast before flying apart. A new study by NASA suggests that these exotic stars are held together by gravitational radiation that puts on the brakes.

    * The Search for Life in the Universe ... Continued
    http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/astrobio_tyson2_030702.html

    This is the final part of a two-part essay by Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of the American Museum of Natural History's Rose Center for Earth and Space, which houses the world renowned Hayden Planetarium. In part one, deGrasse Tyson discusses humanity's quest for an answer to the question, "Are we alone?" and explores the diversity of life on Earth and, perhaps, on other worlds.

    * Image of the Day: Venus Bares All
    http://www.space.com/imageoftheday/image_of_day_030703.html

    The Magellan spacecraft imaged more than 98% of Venus' surface before scientists sent it crashing into the planet's atmosphere in October, 1994.

    Spaceflight:

    * Japan's Space Shuttle Crash Lands in Test
    http://www.space.com/missionlaunches/hope-x_crash_030703.html

    Japan's delta-wing space shuttle approached the speed of sound while cruising over Sweden, but tumbled into a field moments later -- a crash landing that was the latest setback for Japan's space program.

    * Astronotes: Hawaii 40: Ed Lu Celebrates Big Birthday in Orbit
    http://www.space.com/astronotes/astronotes.html

    Expedition Seven science officer Ed Lu reached a milestone in his life Tuesday, enjoying his 40th birthday flying high over Earth and receiving best wishes from flight controllers decked out in Hawaiian Aloha shirts.

    * NASA Names New Shuttle Management Team Members
    http://www.space.com/missionlaunches/shuttle_managers_030702.html

    Space shuttle program manager Bill Parsons announced Wednesday the new team of NASA officials that will help him lead the agency's orbiter fleet back to flight.

    * Mars Express Probe Has Power Problem
    http://www.space.com/missionlaunches/express_update_030702.html

    Europe's Mars Express satellite has lost 30 percent of its power-generating ability and likely will be forced to restrict its instruments' use once it begins operations in Mars orbit in late December, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced July 2.
