    SUMMARY: 2003 was quite a year for space and astronomy, with the loss of Columbia and Chinese making their first successful human space launch. It was definitely a year of highs and lows. Join Universe Today as we look at the top space stories of the year. In no particular order...

    I thing I would have included Brazil's space disaster on the top ten list, as a memorial if nothing else, but I'm not sure which one I would replace - probably stardust finally getting close to its objective.

    I think coverage of testing alternitive means of propulsion is in order. Such as the recent nuclear ion engine, the one on it's way to the moon, the solar sail tests, and the reusable space vehicle contest.

    Also we should find a spot for Voyager 1s progress as well.

    Another thought. Last year a new star was found in the direction of Alpha Centauri, but a little farther out. It was said then that it may turn out to be the 3rd closest star system to us, bumping out Lalande 21185.

    How about an update?
