PUTTING THE PRESSURE ON

Jennifer Laing reports on a young Australian involved in new spacesuit design. James Waldie, a Research Scholar at UCSD, is looking at new spacesuit models for both intra-vehicular (IVA) and extra-vehicular (EVA) use, to help counteract the debilitating effects of weightlessness on astronauts, and perhaps assist expeditions to the Moon and Mars.

SPACEWALKERS CONNECT SOLAR PANELS TO ALPHA

On their second spacewalk of this mission, astronauts Joe Tanner and Carlos Noriega connected the power and data cables to space station Alpha's new solar wings. During the 6 hour, 37 minute spacewalk the two men also installed a large dish antenna and prepared the exterior of the station for the addition of the Destiny laboratory module, due to be attached in January. Endeavor is due to return to Earth on December 11th.

ATLAS LAUNCHES SPY SATELLITE

An Lockheed Martin Atlas 2A rocket successfully launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida last night at 2:47am GMT, carrying a secret spy satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office. The launch was delayed several times because of boats in the launch hazard area, and a collection of technical problems.
