Hourglass Shaped Craters Filled With Traces Of Glaciers - SpaceDaily  Left:  A perspective view of this unusual structure with traces of a glacier, located in Promethei Terra at the eastern rim of the Hellas Basin, at about latitude 38 South and longitude 104 East. This view is looking south-east. 1024x768  This image, taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Express spacecraft, shows flow features most likely formed by glaciers or "block" glaciers. A so-called "block" glacier, an ice stream with a large amount of scree (small rocks of assorted sizes), flowed from a flank of the massif into a bowl-shaped impact crater (left), nine kilometres wide, which has been filled nearly to the rim 
Mars Exploration: The Next 10 Years - SpaceDaily  The path of America's Mars exploration through 2009 is well set. Following the current spectacularly successful pair of Mars Exploration Rovers, 2005 will see the launch of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter - which will use extremely sharp cameras and spectrometers and a very high communications rate to map virtually the entire planet at very high resolution. 2009 will see the launch of two Phoenix  spacecraft, setting on Mars the plutonium-powered Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) which will drive as much as 50 kms. across the Martian surface. It will grind up and analyze Martian rocks.     

Pentagon Developing Super-Speed Spacecraft, Says Report - SpaceDaily  The Pentagon is developing a suborbital space capsule within the next five years that would be launched from the United States and could deliver conventional weapons anywhere in the world within two hours, defense officials say. The first-generation CAV is expected to be ready by 2010 and will be able to provide a global reach capability against high payoff targets, Gen. Lance W. Lord, commander of Air Force Space Command, told the House Armed Services Committee last Wednesday. Unlike a missile, the vehicle could return to its base after releasing the CAV to deliver bombs or intelligence sensors.
