Planet-hunting scientists were dealt a major blow Wednesday when NASA officials announced that a crucial wheel on the Kepler space telescope had ceased to function and that the craft had been placed in safe mode. Even as NASA officials raised the possibility that they could get the telescope back up and running, scientists began mourning the potential loss of a spacecraft that they said had fundamentally altered our understanding of alien planets in the Milky Way - and Earth's place in an increasingly crowded galaxy.

LA CAÑADA ? The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter came back online Monday when Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineers placed it in safe mode after it inexplicably switched from one onboard computer to another. The switch from the A computer to the B computer happened late Thursday night, and engineers have been working since then to determine what made the spacecraft make the swap. It was the first time the computer switch has occurred in the three years that the Mars orbiters has been sending images and data.

The money will be used to control vehicle access to railroad tracks.Rep. Adam Schiff locked in $500,000 for rail safety improvements Friday that transit officials will be able to use to control vehicle access to tracks. Schiff was compelled to push for the funds by January's fatal Metrolink crash, in which a Jeep was driven onto the tracks causing a three-train wreck that left 11 dead and more than 200 injured, and the area's rising mass-transit needs, he said. "In the wake of the tragic train crash, we're all looking for ways to improve rail safety and Metrolink came up with ways to make better safety improvements for the rail corridor ... to prevent further accidents from taking place," Schiff said.
