Destiny Module Installed onto the Space Station

NEAR Will Land on Eros Today

DESTINY MODULE INSTALLED ONTO THE SPACE STATION

Using the Canadian robotic space arm, Astronaut Marsha Ivins removed the Destiny laboratory module from Atlantis cargo bay and attached it to space station Alpha on Saturday. While Ivins worked from inside the shuttle to control the arm, astronauts Bob Curbeam and Tom Jones helped guide the module into place and then spent several more hours connecting external heating, cooling, and electrical cables. With the primary mission complete, the astronauts will perform another spacewalk on Monday to attach a docking port.

NEAR WILL LAND ON EROS TODAY

The NEAR-Shoemaker spacecraft executed a maneuver early this morning to put it on track to land on asteroid Eros later today. If all goes well, NEAR will fire its thrusters three more times to slow it to only 8 kph - slow enough that may land, unharmed, on the surface of the asteroid. Because NEAR was never meant to land on Eros, NASA controllers fully expect it to just smash up on the surface, but there's a chance it will survive. The landing is expected to happen at 2004 GMT (3:04pm EST).
