TODAY ON "MISSION CONTROL, OVER" AT 2PM (ET):

Reginald M. Machell

For more than 25 years, Reginald M. Machell made sure that the

highly specialized tools astronauts use on space-walks were suited

not only to the task, but to the the one doing it. As a Mission

Integration Specialist on the Gemini, Skylab, and Shuttle projects,

he brought man and machine into orbit.

Working extensively with the men and women of human spaceflight

throughout his career, Reg designed the interface of human and

hardware. Where do you keep the tools on a Space Shuttle? Where

should the altimeter go in the layout of a cockpit panel? What

can a space-walker bring along while doing

repairs in orbit - while clinging to the side of an space station?

government, and it will do double duty taking pictures of

the two countries.

RUSSIAN CRASH INVESTIGATION BEGINS

Yury Koptev, the head of Russia's space agency, arrived in

Kazakhstan to begin an investigation in to the cause of the

recent crash of a Proton rocket. Russia recently paid for

$300,000 in compensation for a previous Proton crash, and

is expected to do the same once the investigation

is complete.

POLAR LANDER WILL LISTEN TO MARS

Based on an idea from Carl Sagan, the Mars Polar Lander carries

a tiny microphone designed to listen to sounds on the Martian

surface. Although NASA expects to hear similar sounds on Mars

that you can expect on Earth, they will be much fainter because

of the lower air pressure.

SPACE SHUTTLE REPLACEMENTS COULD BE A LONG WAY OFF

NASA recently announced that it intends to make a decision regarding

the replacement of the current Space Shuttle fleet in 2005, with the

first flight beginning in 2008. The decision is years later than

was originally anticipated by NASA, but was caused by delays with

the X-33 and other events.
