Next Generation Shaceship Plagued with Problems.
AN ALL-NEW MISSION CONTROL, OVER.
New episode today at 2:00PM ET!
The Space Shuttle is painted white. Barry Finger helps keep it
that way. No, he isn't some kind of weightless car wash attendant,
he's an Advanced Life Support System Engineer. Every single stream
of waste produced in space is his responsibility: human waste, water
waste, liquid cleaner, leftovers from animal experiments,
condensation, sweat, you name it! If it's unwanted by the Shuttle
crew, it's wanted by Barry! How do the astronauts go to the bathroom
in space? You can ask that, or any other gross-out scenario live in
our chat room! Join us this Tuesday at 2:00PM ET for an all-new
MISSION CONTROL, OVER.

NEXT GENERATION SHACESHIP PLAGUED WITH PROBLEMS
The innovative but experimental X-33 program may be scrapped. The
goal is to develop the X-33 into a reusable launch vehicle like the
shuttle, but without dropping used boosters and fuel tanks in flight,
cutting launch costs by as much as 90%. But a string of difficulties
could ground the program.
NASA TO REVIEW ALTERNATIVE LIFEBOATS
Delays in assembly of the International Space Station have given
NASA time to reassess their plans for the Crew Return Vehicle (CRV).
To date, the X-38 has been the focus of NASA CRV plans.
VOLCANO STUDIES MAY REVEAL CLUES TO MARTIAN LIFE
Studies of volcanoes on Earth may help researchers learn about
Martian volcanoes, providing information about the ancient Martian
climate. Tracy Gregg from the UB College of Arts and Sciences
indicated that the ultimate goal of the study is to discern if the
red planet could actually have supported life.
