WASHINGTON -- NASA chose Lockheed Martin yesterday to build the spacecraft they hope will return Americans to the moon and take future explorers to Mars. Under a contract that could total $8.15 billion, the aerospace giant will develop a capsule-shaped vehicle similar in appearance to the one that took an earlier generation of astronauts to the moon during Apollo. NASA hopes to use the vehicle, named Orion, to get back to the moon by 2020 and then set sail for Mars. "Space is no longer going to be a destination that we visit briefly," said Scott J. Horowitz, associate administrator of NASA's exploration systems mission directorate.

In The Region NeighborCare suitor, Omnicare, provides data to regulators Omnicare Inc., the Kentucky company making a hostile take-over bid for Baltimore-based NeighborCare Inc., said yesterday that it had completed sending information about the proposed deal to federal antitrust regulators. Omnicare said it has agreed with the Federal Trade Commission that it will not attempt to complete the deal for at least 55 days. A thumbs-down from the regulators would scuttle the deal. If the regulators find the combination would not violate antitrust rules, Omnicare still has to persuade NeighborCare's board, which has resisted the $30-a-share bid for a year so far, or 80 percent of its shareholders.

Columbia's 2004-2005 concert season begins next weekend, not with a trickle but with a deluge. The Columbia Orchestra, Howard County's premier ensemble for instrumental music, takes the Rouse Theatre stage at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23. Works by Beethoven, Berlioz and 20th- century master Paul Hindemith will be on the program that will be led by Jason Love, the ensemble's conductor. Anchoring the concert will be classical music's ultimate drug trip gone bad, Berlioz's phantasmagoric Symphonie Fantastique.

It goes without saying that you can't please everybody, but that doesn't stop Columbia's Candlelight Concert Society from trying. Indeed, the society's 2004-05 concert season - the 32nd chamber music series it has offered the public since its inception - is full of diverse offerings that should leave music lovers of all stripes engaged and edified. To begin with, there are the "meat and potatoes" of the chamber repertoire, masterworks that embody the genius of the Western musical tradition at its most inspired.
