STS-100 ASTRONAUTS COMPLETE SECOND SPACEWALK

Astronauts Chris Hadfield and Scott Parazynski spent another long day out in space yesterday as they completed the installation of the Canadarm2 mobile servicing system. During the 7+ hour spacewalk, the astronauts attached power, video, and data cables to the arm, and prepared it for its first duty - to return its own 1,360 kg installation pallet back to Endeavour for return to Earth.

TITO CAN VISIT, BUT HE STILL HAS SOME RULES TO FOLLOW

Although they're letting Tito visit the International Space Station, NASA has provided the groundrules they want him to follow while he's on board: he's liable for any damage he causes to the station (if he breaks it, he's bought it); he must spend the majority of his time in the Russian modules of the station, and must be escorted by and Expedition 2 crewmember whenever he leaves; the space station partners will assess his impact on station operations, and he may be required to pay the partners for costs. But, he does get to fly.
