    A TEAM of Russian scientists has gone quiet as they race against winter to uncover an ancient Antarctic lake. The group from Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) have been drilling for weeks in an effort to reach isolated Lake Vostok, a vast, dark body of water hidden 4000m below the surface of the continent. Lake Vostok has not been exposed to air in more than 20 million years. The team's last contact with colleagues in the outside world was six days ago, and scientists from around the globe are unsure of the fate of the mission - and...

    Five Russian scientists who died in a plane crash on Tuesday had been helping Iran with nuclear secrets, it has been revealed. They were among 45 killed when the plane's lights failed in heavy fog and careered into a motorway before bursting into flames - leading conspiracy theorists to believe it was a deliberate plot to kill the nuclear experts. Russian security sources confirmed that the dead scientists worked at the controversial Bushehr nuclear plant on the Iranian Persian Gulf.

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 1 - Scientific tests have led American intelligence agencies and government scientists to conclude with near certainty that North Korea sold processed uranium to Libya, bolstering earlier indications that the reclusive state exported sensitive fuel for atomic weapons, according to officials with access to the intelligence. The determination, which has circulated among senior government officials in recent weeks, has touched off a hunt to determine if North Korea has also sold uranium to other countries, including Iran and Syria. So far, there is no evidence that such additional transactions took place. Nonetheless, the conclusion about the uranium transfer...

    MOSCOW (AFP) - How do you calculate the weight of a gigantic man-made object floating around in the supposed "weightlessness" of space? With a big rocket and a little brainpower, Russian scientists said Saturday, as they announced plans to use their Progress space resupply ship to measure the mass of the orbiting International Space Station (news - web sites) (ISS). "We do not know the mass of the ISS precisely enough," Vladimir Solovyov, chief of the Russian mission control team supervising the current Progress mission to the ISS said. "The station is refueled from time to time, something new is...

    Report: N Korean missiles threaten US 03/08/2004 - 15:33:38 North Korea is deploying two new missile systems which could enable it to threaten the continental United States for the first time, Jane’s Defence Weekly reported today. American officials had previously claimed that North Korea was developing missiles, based on the Soviet submarine-launched SSN6, which were capable of hitting the United States. Jane’s said the new missiles, apparently based on SSN6, have a range of 1,500 miles or more. “The submarine-launched ballistic missile or ship-mounted version of this new system is potentially the most threatening,” Jane’s reported. “It would fundamentally alter...
