Russian Launch Issues Delaying China’s First Mars Probe SpaceDaily

The launch of China’s first Mars probe “Yinghuo-1”, originally scheduled for October 2009 on a Russian carrier rocket, has been postponed until 2011 due to Russia’s “technical reasons”, a Chinese space exploration official said here Wednesday. Ye Peijian, chief designer of Chang’e-1, the country’s first moon probe, told Xinhua about the delay on the sidelines of the ongoing annual session of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, China’s top political advisory body.
“Actually, China is now completely capable of exploring Mars independently,” said Ye, also a member of the CPPCC National Committee. “With the improvement of our technologies, there is no problem for China to launch its Mars probe with its own observation and control system.”
Ye said the most suitable time to launch the Mars probe would be in the years 2011, 2013 and 2016 when the distances between Mars and the Earth are the shortest.

War Of The Worlds Mock Documentary Is Coming SpaceDaily

A new live-action movie based on H.G. Wells’ seminal science fiction alien invasion novel, The War of the Worlds, is in post production, it was announced by Pendragon Pictures. The new movie, titled War of the Worlds – The True Story, has a planned release date of October 2010.
Pendragon Pictures is an independent motion picture company that released a previous movie version of War of the Worlds in 2005. Their earlier production grossed $7 million dollars and sold 650,000 copies on DVD, though its critical reception was tepid.
Pendragon producer Susan Goforth states, “This is a complete remake, not a re-working of our previous production.”

Russia Invites China’s 1st Spaceman To Moon Flight SpaceDaily

The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) on Friday invited China’s first spaceman, Yang Liwei, to make a space flight to the moon aboard the promising Russian Kliper shuttle, the Itar-Tass news agency reported. The invitation was offered by the head of Roskosmos, Anatoly Perminov, at a meeting in the day with the Chinese taikonaut. Taikonaut was coined to refer to Chinese astronauts, who are called cosmonauts in Russia.

Designer Plants On Mars SpaceDaily

Take the cold tolerance of bacteria that thrive in arctic ice, add the ultraviolet resistance of tomato plants growing high in the Andes mountains, and combine with an ordinary plant. What do you get? A tough plant “pioneer” that can grow in Martian soil. Like customizing a car, NASA-funded scientists are designing plants that can survive the harsh conditions on Mars. These plants could provide oxygen, fresh food, and even medicine to astronauts while living off their waste. They would also improve morale as a lush, green connection to Earth in a barren and alien world.

Space Race 2: Half-Price Rockets SpaceDaily

The hubbub over a $10 million prize for a pair of private manned spaceflights is over, with a quiet electronic transfer of funds into the bank account of Mojave Aerospace Adventures, a check-and-trophy presentation ceremony last weekend in St. Louis, and a glitzy gala marking the official and successful end of the X Prize. Now, the real work begins.

Vast New Energy Source Almost Here SpaceDaily

Australian scientists predict that a revolutionary new way to harness the power of the sun to extract clean and almost unlimited energy supplies from water will be a reality within seven years. Using special titanium oxide ceramics that harvest sunlight and split water to produce hydrogen fuel, the researchers say it will then be a simple engineering exercise to make an energy-harvesting device with no moving parts and emitting no greenhouse gases or pollutants.
