Rover Eyes Mangled Hardware on Mars -  "Ironically, we have never been able to absolutely prove that our models that predict how much charring occurs during a Mars entry are correct. An observation of the cross-section of Opportunity's heat shield material would help us confirm our models," Manning explained. "If we are successful, this will be the first time we have ever directly seen how well heat shields have worked at Mars," Manning said.     
Russia Vows To Keep Its Nuclear Superpower Status - SpaceDaily  Russia will keep pace with the United States in nuclear weapons technology but not in the size of its strategic arsenal, Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov said Friday according to Interfax news agency. Ivanov also said new long-range, nuclear-capable cruise missiles would be purchased for the country's air force next year. Moscow has said the new missiles would be in service by January 2006 and, with a range of 10,000 kilometres, would be able to penetrate anti-missile defences.     

France Places $4 Billion Nuclear Ballistic Missile Order With EADS - SpaceDaily  Left:  In July French prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin justified the M51 programme, saying: "The nuclear deterrent remains the fundamental element of French independence. The M51 missiles fired from a submarine will be at the forefront of modern technology."  The M51 missile, capable of carrying six nuclear warheads, is to replace from 2010 the M45 missile on four nuclear-armed submarines in the strategic ocean force capable of launching new-generation missiles. The cost of producing the missiles is 3.0 billion euros and the total cost of developing the programme is 5.0 billion euros, the defence ministry has said.
