ABSTRACT
This section offers news briefs on the aerospace industries. A spare Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-O) which orbited on June 27, 2009 is being checked by controllers for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Controllers of the U.S.-European Ulysses solar probe at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory has switched the probe off on June 30, 2009 while silently orbiting the Sun like a comet. A deep space antenna is to be constructed by the European Space Agency in Argentina.
