'Solar Ultrasound' Waves Discovered By Satellite
The Sun's atmosphere is filled with ultrasound-like waves that may help solve decades-old mysteries about the Sun and space weather, according to Southwest Research Institute scientists who found the waves in data from NASA's TRACE spacecraft - Spaceflight Now
Sun Storm Hits Comet
Eruptions of matter from the surface of the Sun can create chaos in a comet's tail, astronomers have found. They have shown that three different coronal mass ejections in 2002 caused wobbles in the tail of comet Ikeya-Zhang - Nature
ESA Astronaut Roberto Vittori To Fly To The ISS On Italian Soyuz Mission ENEID

Hubble Gets A Shot In The Arm
The smoldering controversy over the future of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has flared up again. On December 8th, after a six-month study, a blue-ribbon panel of experts recommended that NASA should do exactly what agency administrator Sean O'Keefe has said he won't do: return Space Shuttle astronauts to the orbiting observatory to make repairs and upgrades - Sky and Telescope
