3 killed at shopping center in U.S.
30/04/2007
QUOTE
Three people were killed and at least two others were wounded Sunday afternoon in a shooting incident at a shopping mall in Kansas City, in the Midwestern U.S. state of Missouri, U.S. media reported.

The dead included the gunman, who was killed by police in the shooting incident at the War Parkway Center, about 15 km south of downtown Kansas City, CNN reported.

The gunman shot two persons to death at a parking lot, and then went inside the shopping center and fired more shots. At least two people were wounded in the mall, local police said.

The shooter was killed by police responding to the incident, reports said.

In addition, a police officer was wounded in an earlier nearby incident, which police said might be related.

Sunday’s shooting occurred nearly two weeks after the deadliest shooting incident in U.S. history. On April 16, 33 people, including the gunman, were killed in Virginia Tech, a state university located in Blacksburg, Virginia.

On Monday, two people, including the gunman, were killed and two others were injured in a shooting incident in a luxury apartment in Houston, Texas, just three days after a contract worker at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston killed a male hostage and himself inside a building at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

DarmonVing, I recall you posted earlier that this was not the deadliest shooting in US history.

As a matter of fact I just watched a program about The Mormons tonight on PBS where they slaughtered over 100 men, women and children in Utah back around 1858. The men were shot, the women and children were hacked to death.

And if you include the native american slaughter here in the USA, I am sure it's much much higher.

I mention Nowak and now the Florida state attorney's office releases awhole pile of documents on her...


QUOTE
Papers tell of tension between Nowak, astronauts
By Traci Watson
USA TODAY
QUOTE
Many NASA staffers knew or heard rumors that Lisa Nowak was having an affair with a fellow astronaut, long before allegations that she attacked a rival for William Oefelein's affections, according to documents released Tuesday by the Florida state attorney's office.

Included in the 124 pages of documents are interviews by NASA's Office of Inspector General and the Naval Criminal Investigative Services. They detail the low opinion other astronauts had of Nowak and how unhappy she was about not getting a spot on a shuttle mission in October. Nowak allegedly attacked Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman the following February.

NASA has no rules against relationships between astronauts. The Navy, where Nowak is a captain and Oefelein a commander, forbids adultery by officers. Both were married to other people during their relationship.

Police say Nowak drove 950 miles from her home in Houston to Orlando to confront Shipman, Oefelein's girlfriend. Nowak pleaded not guilty to attempted kidnapping, burglary with assault and battery. The trial is scheduled for September. Nowak is no longer an astronaut. The Navy has assigned her to duties in a training division in Corpus Christi, Texas. The military will review Nowak's status after her civil trial is over, Navy spokeswoman Cmdr. Lydia Robertson said.

In January, Oefelein told Nowak he wanted to date Shipman exclusively. Oefelein, 42, delivered the news around the time Nowak, 43, separated from her husband. Oefelein and his wife divorced in 2005, about a year after he got involved with Nowak.

The new documents include summaries of interviews with astronauts from Nowak's shuttle mission in July and Oefelein's flight in December. Astronauts and others on the space agency's staff told Navy and NASA investigators of seeing Nowak and Oefelein together in unusual settings. Astronaut Michael Fossum described seeing his crewmate Nowak and Oefelein together at the Kennedy Space Center crew residence, normally occupied only by the crew of upcoming missions.

Renee Walker, a publicist whom Nowak asked for Oefelein's schedule, told the interviewers she had heard rumors the two "were seeing each other."

When Walker mentioned that possibility in February to astronaut Robert Curbeam, one of Oefelein's shuttle crewmates, "Curbeam responded by saying that they no longer liked each other," according to the investigators' report.

In 2005, Nowak told two shuttle crewmates she could not fly home to Houston with them from Kennedy in central Florida because she had business nearby, Fossum told investigators. Fossum discovered by looking at flight records that Nowak flew to Key West with Oefelein.

Fossum and Mark Kelly, both of whom flew with Nowak in 2006, said Nowak was disappointed she didn't get a seat on a shuttle mission scheduled to launch this fall. That meant her flight in 2006 was probably her last. Crewmate Stephanie Wilson got the spot instead, the astronauts said.

"Nowak was upset that she was not chosen for the job because it was probably her last opportunity for spaceflight," according to the interview with Fossum.

Kelly blamed Nowak's failure to get a spot on the flight on her personality. Kelly said "she was not very helpful on their space mission and never went out of her way to help other crewmembers," the investigators' report said. Fossum said Nowak could be " 'prickly' about things, even contentious," and "weak from a teamwork aspect," the report summary said.

Trent Hebert, manager of flight crew operations, told investigators a colleague complained about Nowak's behavior during a public appearance in 2006. She refused to open a drawer to get a pen to sign autographs and then physically blocked a colleague from opening the drawer to get her a pen.

None of the NASA personnel interviewed in the new documents said they had any inkling Nowak planned to go to Florida to confront Shipman. Kelly and Fossum expressed surprise, not because of the alleged attack, but because Nowak was "notoriously bad at navigating to her destination in a car," the documents said.

That's the answer to the question you are going to have right about now, when you learn that tonight's episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" is an adaptation of the story of astronaut Lisa Nowak (Ch. 4, 9 p.m.).

She's the love-sick spacewoman who last February drove 900 miles from Houston to Orlando, Fla., reportedly wearing an adult diaper that allowed her to drive straight through to Florida without the bathroom breaks that can be so disruptive when one is in a hurry to confront a romantic rival.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- According to a report released Wednesday, investigators have been unable to identify the 69 pills found in former astronaut Lisa Nowak's car at the time of her arrest, though they have ruled out illegal drugs.

A report prepared by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement says the unknown tablets were not contraband under Florida law.

Nowak was arrested in February after police say she drove from Houston to Florida to confront Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman in a parking lot at the Orlando International Airport.

Fossum comments on Lisa Nowak case
SIOUX FALLS
QUOTE
An astronaut with ties to South Dakota says astronauts are normal people with normal problems.

During a visit to the McCrossan Boys Ranch this past week, Mike Fossum, a NASA mission specialist who was born in Sioux Falls, was asked about the Lisa Nowak case.

Nowak, also an astronaut, is accused of trying to kidnap a rival for a space shuttle pilot’s affections.

Fossum said he considers Nowak a colleague and a friend. He also said he “can’t really fathom what happened to cause this whole situation to unfold the way it did. I can’t understand it.”

He and Nowak flew a mission to the international space station last summer. Fossum said he has known her for three years.

“A lot goes into the process of becoming selected to be an astronaut,” he said, “but when you get down to it, we’re normal people with normal kinds of problems.”

The Nowak case “certainly doesn’t put us in a good light in the news, but I think that people understand this is not representative of the people in our office and the kind of professionalism we hold and the way we conduct our lives,” Fossum said.

Fossum was born in Sioux Falls in 1957. His family lived in Pierre for about two years during the 1960s and later moved to McAllen, Texas.

Former East Mountain resident Jocelyne Couture-Nowak victim in Virginia Tech tragedy 
BY MONIQUE CHIASSON
The Truro Daily News
QUOTE
“We are absolutely stunned. It’s a tragedy to everybody who knew her ... to realize we will never see her again is devastating,”

TRURO - Sadness, shock and stunned silence. That’s how people felt when they learned that a former colleague was murdered in Monday’s shooting rampage at Virginia Tech.

Jocelyne Couture-Nowak’s life was cut short by the massacre at the U.S. college. Jocelyne was formerly a resident of East Mountain.

“We are absolutely stunned. It’s a tragedy to everybody who knew her ... to realize we will never see her again is devastating,” said Debbie Connolly, student services co-ordinator at the Institute for Human Services Education.

Jocelyne taught French, programming and language development for a number of years at the institute. She had also taught French part time at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College in Bible Hill.

“We are saddened. It’s a great loss to the education community as a whole. She was born to be an instructor,” said Connolly.

Anna MacDonell, program director at the institute, received the news at work yesterday morning.

“We certainly did not expect this to hit so close to home.

She was so full of life,” said MacDonell, between tears. She said Jocelyne went to Virginia with her husband, Jerzy Nowak, to teach French.

“She was so concerned about guns there in Virginia. They were so prevalent there ... (and) she was anti-gun.”

MIAMI - At least six people were shot in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, today but none suffered a life-threatening injury, police said.

A spokeswoman for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Department said she did not know a motive for the shootings or if the shooter was still on the loose.

"We have at least six people confirmed shot," spokeswoman Melissa Bujeda said. None had life-threatening injuries, she said.

The incident came two weeks after a Virginia Tech university student killed 32 people and then himself in the worst mass shooting in modern US history and just a couple of days after a gunman killed two people and himself in a Kansas City shopping mall.

Train With Shuttle Parts Derails
May 02, 2007
QUOTE
DEMOPOLIS, Ala. (AP) - A freight train carrying segments of the space shuttle's solid rocket boosters derailed Wednesday after a bridge collapsed, authorities said. Six people were reported injured.

NASA sent teams to check on the whether the equipment was damaged, space agency spokesman Kyle Herring said.

He said the booster segments, which were on their way to Florida, were not scheduled for use during the next shuttle flight, set for launch June 8, but for missions in October and December.

The condition of the injured was not immediately disclosed. The cause of the bridge collapse was under investigation.

The Alabama Emergency Management Agency said that none of the cargo spilled. The train landed on its side on the ground in a wooded area, and there appeared to be no fire, EMA spokesman Jeff Byard.

The shuttle's twin boosters are 120 feet tall and consist of four propellant segments each. They are used during liftoff and the first two minutes or so of flight to help the spacecraft break free of Earth's orbit, and are then jettisoned into the sea, after which they are recovered, refurbished and often reused.

As for the effect of the derailment on future missions, Herring said it was too soon to tell.

A leak of burning gas between two segments of a solid booster rocket caused the Challenger explosion that killed seven astronauts in 1986.

DarmonVing... did you know, in 1969, my stepdad repaired Queen Elizabeths II Rolls Royce?

It was shipped over and transported to our home in Burbank CA, and we actually got to ride in it after he fixed it.

My stepdad was used and then discarded. He was a genius and a nice man when sober. But when drunk, he turned into my worst nightmare.

My stepdad was picked up by helicopter and flown to Panama for some work around 1968. I was impressed that he seemed so important to someone.

My stepdad was also primarily responsible for getting the Mt. Wilson radio and tv transmitters up and running. He stayed awake for 9 days straight - my mom said he did some pills - and when he came home, he slept for 3 days. I'll never forget it, cause he wet the bed and I laughed and said... just like my brother does everyday.

My brother was also victimized and he tormented me for many years, and in 1987, he married a jewish woman and they had a large lavish expensive jewish wedding. She changed the way he treated me and he soon became nicer, though I always knew it was just an act.

On his wedding night, he was hospitalized from drug and alcohol overdose, as his new wife was a coke addict. Before they got married she liked to party with me all night long and she continued partying, and my brother too, even though I had quit the devils dandruff.

At my brothers bachelor party, I rented a limo and 4 of the 6 of us all did coke and drank. I was one of the sober ones. It ruined the whole evening.

Incidently, his new wife soon cheated on him and they were divorced.

Video Shows Former Astronaut at Airport
May 11, 2007
By TRAVIS REED
Associated Press Writer
QUOTE
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Former astronaut Lisa Nowak waited nearly an hour at the airport for the romantic rival she is accused of attacking, donning a trenchcoat as the woman looked for her bags, a video released Friday shows.

The security footage from Orlando International Airport depicts Nowak arriving at 12:33 a.m. Feb. 5, then following 10 to 15 yards behind Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman as Shipman went to the baggage claim area.

Police say Nowak raced the 900 miles from Houston to the Orlando airport to confront Shipman, wearing an astronaut diaper so that she would not have to stop. She was arrested in February after police say she attacked Shipman in the parking lot, shortly after the video was taken.

Nowak, 44, has pleaded not guilty to attempted kidnapping, burglary with assault and battery. Authorities have said Nowak had an affair with Shipman's boyfriend, astronaut Bill Oefelein.

The judge has asked the prosecution and defense to limit contact with the media, so neither police nor prosecutors would discuss the tape. Nowak's defense did not immediately return calls and e-mails left after-hours Friday.

The video does not include footage of the alleged attack.

Before Shipman arrives, Nowak goes off camera for about five minutes and reappears. Nowak stands and intermittently paces, carrying a bag on one shoulder.

At one point she hurriedly walks to the baggage escalator, then reappears moments later. Shipman arrives about 50 minutes after the cameras show Nowak appear in the waiting area, and Nowak follows when she leaves.

Nowak appears to be standing just a few feet away as Shipman waits for her bags. After a couple minutes, the former astronaut pulls on and buttons a light-colored trench coat. The end of the tape, nearly three hours after Nowak's first security camera showing, shows someone with a light trenchcoat running.

Authorities have said Nowak pepper-sprayed Shipman after knocking on her window and saying she needed help.

Police said they found a BB gun, a new steel mallet, a knife and rubber tubing in Nowak's possession. NASA released Nowak from the astronaut corps a month after her arrest. Her trial has been moved to September.

Lawyer: Ex-Astronaut Didn't Wear Diaper
By MIKE SCHNEIDER
06.29.07
QUOTE
An attorney for a former astronaut wanted to set the record straight Friday: Lisa Nowak didn't wear diapers during the 950-mile road trip to confront a romantic rival.

"The biggest lie in this preposterous tale that has been told is that my client drove from Houston, Texas, to Orlando, Florida, nonstop, wearing a diaper," Donald Lykkebak said after filing motions to suppress evidence in Nowak's criminal case. "That is an absolute fabrication."

The tidbit that Nowak wore diapers during her trip was written in the police report filed after Nowak's arrest in February. The diaper detail became fodder for late-night TV comics and talk radio and even inspired an episode of the NBC show "Law & Order."

There were toddler-size diapers in her car when she was arrested, but they were several years old, Lykkebak said. Nowak and her family had used them when Houston was evacuated in 2005 during Hurricane Rita, he said.

The Orlando Police Department did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Nowak, 44, was charged with attempted kidnapping, battery and burglary with assault in a confrontation at Orlando International Airport with Colleen Shipman, the girlfriend of former astronaut Bill Oefelein. Oefelein told detectives he had a two-year relationship with Nowak but ended it some time after he started a relationship with Shipman.

Nowak has pleaded not guilty and her trial is set for September. She was dismissed from the astronaut corps a month after her arrest.

Oefelein was dismissed from the corps at the beginning of June.

MELBOURNE, Fla. — Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman and former astronaut Bill Oefelein were arm-in-arm Friday as Shipman appeared for a deposition in the upcoming criminal trial of her alleged attacker, former astronaut Lisa Nowak.

Shipman and Oefelein walked into the King Reporting Office in Suntree without responding to questions.

It took 90 minutes for Shipman to tell her side of the Feb. 5 incident in an Orlando International Airport parking lot to defense attorney Donald Lykkebak and her own attorney, Kepler Funk.

When it was over, the couple walked to Funk’s sport utility vehicle holding hands, but again remaining silent.

When asked whether the deposition was easy or difficult, Funk said, “It’s always easy when you tell the truth and, of course, Colleen told the truth.”

After her Feb. 5 arrest, Nowak told police she drove from Houston to Orlando to talk with Shipman about their mutual love interest — Oefelein. She told police she used baby diapers in her cross-country trek.

Shipman told police that Nowak, wearing a wig and trench coat, doused Shipman’s face with pepper spray and tried desperately to get into her car.

According to court documents, Nowak carried with her that night a duffel bag containing a BB pistol, wig, trenchcoat, hat, knife, steel mallet, surgical rubber tubing and black plastic garbage bags.

Nowak is charged with attempted kidnapping, battery and attempted vehicle burglary with battery.

Nowak was fired as an astronaut by NASA in March. Oefelein was fired from NASA last month. Nowak remains a Navy captain and Oefelein continues as a Navy commander.

A status hearing is scheduled for July 29 in Orlando before Judge Marc Lubet at 8:30 a.m. Nowak’s trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 24.

Nowak, Oefelein’s messages are gone
June 7, 2007
QUOTE
An Orlando Police Department detective was unable to obtain any text messages between astronauts Lisa Nowak and Bill Oefelein after Cingular Wireless officials told them those documents are not kept.

Nowak is charged with attempted kidnapping, battery and attempted vehicle burglary with a battery after police said she attacked a rival for Oefelein’s affections.

Det. Chris Becton and Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Det. Matt Nelson served a warrant on the Palm Beach County-based company on May 4.

“The content of the text messages between Captain Nowak and Commander Oefelein will provide information showing how Captain Nowak was able to manipulate information from Commander Oefelein,” documents released Thursday read.

However, Cingular employee Jeanne Mulcahy told the detectives that “Cingular Wireless is the largest telecommunications company and does not store the content of text messages.”

The record shows that Oefelein and Nowak shared a Cingluar telephone contract. Oefelein paid the bill and Nowak’s phone was listed as a second phone on the contract.

Her trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 24.

Prosecutors based the charge on items she had, including a steel mallet, a knife and rubber tubing. (AP)according to a police affidavit. She had obtained a copy of Shipman's flight plans to Orlando.

The affidavit provides this account: Nowak checked into a La Quinta Inn in Orlando under a false name, stashed her car and set off to meet Shipman's flight from Houston to Orlando.

Shipman picked up her luggage about 3 a.m. As she waited for the bus to the airport satellite parking lot, Nowak lingered nearby in a wig and a trench coat. When Shipman boarded the bus, Nowak boarded, too. She got off where Shipman did.

Nowak was armed with a steel mallet, a buck knife and a BB gun that resembled a handgun. It was loaded and was set to fire, according to the affidavit.

Walking to her car, Shipman heard "running footsteps" behind her. She jumped into her car, locking the door. But before she could pull away, Nowak slapped at the window and pulled at the door.

"Can you help me please?" Nowak told her, according to the affidavit. "My boyfriend was supposed to pick me up, and he is not here. I've been traveling and it's late. Can you give me a ride to the parking office?"

Shipman said she'd send someone to help. Nowak asked to use Shipman's cellphone. Shipman told her the battery was dead. Nowak said she could not hear Shipman through the window. Then Nowak began to cry.

Shipman opened her window two inches. Nowak sprayed something, later determined to be pepper spray, at Shipman's face. Shipman drove away, her eyes burning, and sought help, according to police.

Police and prosecutors say the evidence suggests that Nowak might have wanted to get into Shipman's car and then kill her.

Prosecutor Amanda Cowan likened Nowak's planning to the kind of preparations astronauts make for space.

"She had a mission that she was very determined to carry out," Cowan said.

The judge had agreed to release Nowak on $15,000 bond on charges of kidnapping and battery, but with an added a charge of attempted murder, the bail was increased to $25,000.

There's been a lot of weird things happening lately with NASA from trains being derailed and wires being cut in electronic equipment to tipsy astronauts flying shuttle missions, but the one thing that bugs me is the problem with the broken tile and NASA's insistance that it not be repaired before the shuttle returns home...

The launch of which occurred on 8/07/07 at precisely 6:36 PM... NASA now wants to bring the shuttle back a day early because of the possibility of weather conditions deteorating in Houston...

NASA eyes hurricane, may bring shuttle back early

HOUSTON (Reuters) - NASA kept a close eye on Hurricane Dean as it churned through the Caribbean Sea on Friday and said it may cut short space shuttle Endeavour's flight if the storm threatens Mission Control in Houston.

The U.S. space agency said it would shorten a planned six-hour spacewalk on Saturday, and look for other ways to get ready for a Tuesday landing instead of the currently scheduled Wednesday.

And to top it all off; there was a movie called "Invasion" that just came out that deals with some kind of extraterrestrial bug that hitches a ride on a shuttle that just happens to break up on re-entry... According to some sources, the footage of the shuttle breaking up was actual footage of the Columbia disaster... Not sure if they used actual footage or not though...

In the latest remake the alien spores have a little help getting to the populace. A space shuttle's Columbia-like re-entry disaster spreads debris across the map. The pieces are loaded with little pulsating spores. As in previous versions, the microscopic villains take over a human body, and when that body finally succumbs to deep sleep, presto, you have a pod person, an impersonally efficient but soulless alien look-alike.

The idiots at NASA really must be having some problems if they are insisting that there isn't a problem with a broken tile and that the felt-like material is gonna keep the over 2000 degree heat from doing some significant damage to the shuttle upon re-entry...

NASA Decides No Repair Needed On Shuttle Tile Damage
by John Wolper
August 17th 2007 
QUOTE
"The MMT made two significant decisions tonight," the chairman of the mission management team, John Shannon said. "The first was a unanimous recommendation that the damage we saw after reviewing all the engineering tests and analysis was not a threat to crew safety, this was not something that the astronauts are in danger about. We had thought that for several days, but we were waiting for the final analysis to be complete.”

The damage is not enough to risk a catastrophic failure of the shuttle's heat shield, like the one that destroyed the shuttle Columbia on re-entry in February 2002, but the process of underside repairs during a spacewalk would have entailed risks for the astronauts.

"We went through all of that data and it was unanimous that we were not in a loss of crew/vehicle case," Shannon said. "The discussion then centered on whether we should use as is and return Endeavour in its current condition or if the uncertainties in the analysis could potentially cause some underlying tile damage or structural damage that we would have to deal with at the Kennedy Space Center. So we had that debate. And it was not unanimous, but it was pretty overwhelming to go with the use-as-is condition, in other words not to do the tile repair."

NASA: Sabotaged Wires Won't Delay Space Shuttle Launch
By Tariq Malik
Staff Writer
26 July 2007
QUOTE
Sabotaged wires inside a computer box bound for the International Space Station (ISS) won't delay the planned Aug. 7 launch of NASA's shuttle Endeavour, the agency said Thursday.

NASA's Inspector General Office has launched an investigation into intentionally cut wires in a data relay box slated to launch aboard Endeavour next month and be installed inside the space station's U.S.-built Destiny laboratory, NASA's associate administrator for space operations Bill Gerstenmaier told reporters Thursday.

"It will be repaired and it will fly on this flight," Gerstenmaier said of the damaged ISS hardware, which if flown as-is would have prevented the collection of structural performance data on the space station's backbone-like main truss. If left in place, the damage would have posed no risk to astronauts aboard the space station, he added. 

The subcontractor responsible for building the damaged computer box reported the apparent wire sabotage about a week ago, said Gerstenmaier, though he would not disclose the name of the subcontractor while an investigation is underway. The damage found on the ISS box was apparently caused during its preparations at the subcontractor's premises, which are not located in Florida, he added.

Gerstenmaier spoke at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida after shuttle program managers, engineers and contractors concluded a two-day Flight Readiness Review to set an official Aug. 7 launch target for Endeavour and its astronaut crew.

The officials did not discuss the details of an independent health panel which found, according to a report by the weekly trade journal Aviation Week & Space Technology, "heavy use of alcohol" by NASA astronauts before launch.

The report, posted to the journal's Web site, cites findings from one of two astronaut health panel committees which found that, on at least two occasions, astronauts were allowed to launch even after fellow spaceflyers and flight surgeons deemed them unfit from intoxication and possible flight safety risks.

"There has not been a disciplinary action or anything I've been involved with regarding this kind of issue," said Gerstenmaier, adding that it was inappropriate to delve deeper into the details of the report, as well as those of a separate astronaut health panel, which NASA will release Friday.

NASA plans to hold a press conference at 1:00 p.m. EDT (1700 GMT) Friday to discuss to two reports. Both studies were instigated earlier this year by the arrest of former astronaut Lisa Nowak, who is accused of attacking a woman she perceived to be a romantic rival for the affections of a fellow spaceflyer. Nowak has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted kidnapping and battery.

Distractions aside, NASA remains committed to launching Endeavour on Aug. 7 at about 7:02 p.m. EDT (2302 GMT). The planned 11-day mission may be extended three additional days to deliver fresh cargo, spare parts and a new starboard side piece of the space station.

The only major obstacle currently standing between Endeavour and orbit is an unmanned rocket slated to launch NASA's Phoenix mission to Mars on Aug. 3 from a launch pad at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station near NASA's Florida spaceport. That mission currently has about two liftoff attempts before Endeavour steps up to the launch plate, but the shuttle flight could be delayed a day or so to allow Phoenix more flight opportunities, Gerstenmaier said.

"Phoenix has essentially a month to get launched," Gerstenmaier said, adding that after that the red planet lander would have to wait two years until Mars and the Earth were in the correct orbital position for another attempt. "So clearly, in the overall sense, to get to Mars is pretty important and they have a pretty constrained launch window."

Commanded by veteran astronaut Scott Kelly, Endeavour's STS-118 mission will mark NASA's second shuttle flight of the year and follows last month's successful STS-117 spaceflight to the ISS aboard Atlantis. Included among Endeavour's seven-astronaut crew is former Idaho schoolteacher Barbara Morgan, NASA's first official educator astronaut to fly.

Astronauts Relieved to Skip Repairs
August 17, 2007
By MARCIA DUNN
AP Aerospace Writer
QUOTE
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Endeavour's astronauts said Friday they were relieved by NASA's decision to skip repairs to the deep gouge on their spaceship's belly, and noted it would have been tough to pull the job off.

"We were not looking forward to doing it only because there was a lot of risk involved," said Rick Mastracchio, who would have been the main repairman.

It would have been difficult to prepare all the tools and get to the gouge on Endeavour's underside, Mastracchio said. The actual repair - applying black paint and caulk-like goo to the crevice - would have been the shortest part, he said.

Endeavour's commander, Scott Kelly, said the crew was concerned about potentially causing more damage to the underside of the shuttle. All seven shuttle astronauts and even the three crewmen on the international space station supported the decision, he noted.

"We agree absolutely 100 percent with the decision to not repair the damage," Kelly said in a news conference from space.

Thursday night's decision by mission managers was not unanimous. Some engineers at Johnson Space Center in Houston, home to Mission Control, thought it would be prudent to send Mastracchio and another crewman outside to patch the 3 1/2-inch-long, 2-inch-wide gouge.

But mission managers and most everyone else shared Kelly's view that the damage - well understood and by no means catastrophic - could have been made worse and was, in fact, unnecessary.

Endeavour is scheduled to undock from the space station on Monday and land on Wednesday. But NASA is keeping a sharp eye on Hurricane Dean, currently aiming for Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. If it looks like the storm might veer toward Houston and force Mission Control to relocate to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, managers could order the shuttle to come home a day early or remain at the station longer than planned.

The repair debate and analyses on the ground dragged on for an entire week. The concern was not that Endeavour might be destroyed like Columbia was in 2003, but rather that heat exposure during re-entry might weaken the aluminum frame and require lengthy post-flight repairs.

"I, for one, am happy they took as long as they did," Kelly told reporters.

Both Kelly, a Navy commander, and his co-pilot, Marine Col. Charles Hobaugh, said they do not expect any extra tension in the cockpit when it comes time to bring Endeavour home. On board will be teacher-astronaut Barbara Morgan, who was Christa McAuliffe's backup for Challenger's doomed flight in 1986.

"We gave this a very thorough look and I am very, very comfortable and there will be no extra concern in my mind due to this damage," Kelly said.

Endeavour's gouge was caused by a piece of debris that broke off the fuel tank at liftoff on Aug. 8. It weighed just one-third of an ounce and consisted of foam insulation, ice or both. Foam had come off that same part of the tank - a bracket that holds the liquid oxygen feed line in place - on previous flights.

Kelly said he wouldn't be surprised if damage occurs on the next shuttle flight or the one after that. The shuttle's thermal shield is delicate and, despite all the improvements to the external fuel tank, more are needed, he said.

With all the drama hopefully behind them, the astronauts geared up for one last spacewalk, on Saturday, to install some more equipment outside the space station. The two spacewalkers will be extra careful, avoiding any sharp edges, so they don't rip a glove and have to rush back inside. They also will frequently check their gloves for any damage.

Wednesday's outing was cut short when Mastracchio noticed he'd pierced the thumb of his left glove. The slit penetrated only the top two layers of his five-layer glove.

Hi DarmonVing, I saw a close-up on tv news of the damaged ceramic tiles under the shuttle and it didn't look good to me, but I'm not a rocket scientist.

It surely appears that the shuttle program has been sabotaged from within as no repairs are performed.

I believe that the enemy is within the gates.

The enemy of mankind (synagogue of satan) currently controls our news medias, magazines, newspapers and tv, entertainment industry, most movies, sports, music, currency, government, military and so much more.

Had the enemy not been involved in the space program, I believe we would not have lost 2 shuttles already.

WoW! Thanks DVing for keeping up with this....

after all of this training is it too dangerous to repair a missing tile esp. after the explanation that missing tiles were the cause of the most recent shuttle situation? OH!, but it is okay to do spacewalks for no particular reason besides sightseeing and observation. What's the point? The risks of the main repairperson outweighed the benefits of the entire crew and ship? Huh?

They may damage the underbelly more by trying to repair it with a patch? Huh?

Cut wires? Someone cut the wires? Huh?

We choose the back up ex-teacher to Christa McAuliffe from 1986 over 20 years ago? Huh?

I smell something foul again!
