First Sea Launch Satellite Mission a Botch.
AN ALL-NEW MISSION CONTROL, OVER.
New episode today at 2:00PM ET!
Did you know that the human body excretes 20% of its blood supply upon
entering space? That's fine as long as you're floating around weightless,
but what happens when you return to Earth? That problem is dealt with by
Suzanne Schneider, Research Physiologist for NASA. Suzanne is responsible
for not only studying the effects of space travel on the human body, but
also creating countermeasures to strengthen it. Ask Suzanne for all the gory
details, live this Tuesday at 2:00PM ET. It's the ultimate sports medicine
on an all-new MISSION CONTROL, OVER.

REVIEW PANEL CRITICIZES MARS PROGRAM RISKS
In the wake of the Mars Polar Lander and Mars Climate Orbiter botches,
a review panel may be putting the nail in the coffin for the "bigger,
cheaper, faster" philosophy that drove the Mars program. The review
blames the focus on "faster" and "cheaper" missions at the expense
of successful risk management.
FIRST SEA LAUNCH satellite MISSION A BOTCH
The Zenit rocket crashed into the Pacific, along with it's payload,
a communications satellite with a seven digit price tag. The Sea
Launch system deploys rockets from a converted oil rig. The
Ukrainian-made Zenit-3 SL rocket may have failed, causing the crash
of the craft.
ASTEROID IMPACT COULD CAUSE "ULTRAVIOLET SPRING"
The worst effect of a massive asteroid impact might not be the
dreaded "impact winter" in which the sun's rays are blocked by
airborne particles. High nitric oxide levels in the atmosphere
could cause devastate the Earth's ability to block ultraviolet rays,
causing a far more disastrous "ultraviolet spring."
