美專家要求俄羅斯從國際空間站撤走手槍
俄新網╱俄新網 2008-02-18 17:18
 
俄新網RUSNEWS.CN華盛頓2月18日電 據NBC電視台報道,著名的美國航天專家、美國宇航局前工程師奧伯格(James Oberg)要求從國家空間站撤走俄羅斯的一只上膛的手槍。 據報道,關于在國際空間站上存在這只手槍的事情所有人都知道,但俄羅斯和美國官方人士都對此表示沉默。 目前手槍位于與國家空間站對接的俄羅斯"聯盟"號返回艙內座椅之間的一個特別裝置內。 據悉,手槍是發給宇航員在返回地球著陸時以防萬一用來防身用的整套設備中的一件。 國際空間站上所有宇航員都知曉這只手槍的存在,但俄羅斯航天管理部門和美國宇航局的官方人士都沒公開這個事情。 NBC電視台指出,奧伯格認為這很危險,國際空間站上不應該有手槍,那里的宇航員本身就處于高度緊張的工作環境。 他說:"在太空工作的宇航員曾經出現過精神過度緊張的情況,當他們發洩這種情緒的時候,他們的同事都擔憂事態惡化的不可收拾"。

UN flag destined for space 

February 22 2008 at 02:16AM(AFP)

New York - A United Nations flag is to be flown to the International Space Station in April before returning to Earth to be displayed at a space exhibition in Vienna, the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs said on Thursday.

The office said the blue and white emblem would be ferried to the orbiting space station by South Korean astronaut Ko San who is to conduct scientific experiments there for eight days in April.

On its return to Earth, the flag is to be presented to UN boss Ban Ki-moon before being taken to Vienna later this year to be prominently displayed at the space exhibition at the International Centre in the Austrian capital.

The tradition of astronauts taking the UN flag to outer space began during the earliest manned space missions. The flag has orbited the Earth, flown aboard space stations and reached the moon.

聯合國旗幟將飄揚國際太空站
法新社╱盧瑞珠 2008-02-22 18:50     


 
(法新社紐約聯合國總部二十一日電)聯合國負責外太空事務辦公室今天表示,一面聯合國旗幟將在今年四月飄揚在國際太空站,然後再送回地球,在維也納舉行的航太展中展示。

辦公室指出,這幅有著聯合國藍白標誌圖案的旗幟,將由南韓太空人高山(譯音)今年四月進行八天太空實驗時,帶進太空站軌道。

回到地球後,這面旗子將先呈送給聯合國祕書長潘基文,再於今年稍晚被帶到維也納,放在航太展的顯著位置。

太空人帶一面聯合國旗幟到外太空的傳統,起源於最早載人太空任務。這面聯合國旗幟已經由地球軌道發射進入外太空,在國際太空站飄揚,並抵達月球。

UN Flag To Wave Again In Outer Space
Saturday, 23 February 2008, 9:19 am
Press Release: United Nations

UN flag to wave again in outer space
21 February 2008 - A United Nations flag will make a historic round trip to the international space station this coming April, the Organization's Office for Outer Space Affairs (OOSA) announced today.

Upon its return to Earth, the banner will be presented to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon before being taken to Vienna later this year to take a prominent place among the permanent items at the space exhibition at the International Centre in the Austrian capital.

It will fly to the station with astronaut Ko San of the Republic of Korea, who will be conducting scientific experiments at the orbiting facility for eight days.

The tradition of astronauts carrying the UN flag into outer space began during the earliest manned space missions. To date, the blue and white symbol has orbited the Earth, flown aboard space stations and reached the moon.

OOSA is responsible for promoting international cooperation in the peaceful uses of outer space and the development and codification of international space law. There are currently five UN treaties governing outer space.

STS-122 Crew Looks to End Mission Today

Four landing opportunities are available for space shuttle Atlantis and the STS-122 crew to return to Earth today. Flight controllers and forecasters continue to monitor the weather at Kennedy Space Center, Fla., and Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

Atlantis’ first landing opportunity is at 9:07 a.m. EST on orbit 202. If controllers elect to take it, Commander Steve Frick will perform the deorbit burn to begin the descent to Kennedy. Orbit 203 provides a second opportunity at 10:42 a.m.

The first opportunity for the California base is on Orbit 204 at 12:12 p.m. The final opportunity – the second at Edwards – is on Orbit 205 at 1:47 p.m.

STS-122 arrived at the International Space Station Feb. 9, delivering the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Columbus laboratory to the station. The crews installed Columbus Feb. 11 and conducted three spacewalks to prepare Columbus for its scientific work. They also replaced an expended nitrogen tank on the station’s P1 truss.

In addition, Atlantis delivered a new station crew member, Flight Engineer Leopold Eyharts, an ESA astronaut. He replaced astronaut Daniel Tani, who is returning to Earth aboard Atlantis.

STS-122 is the 121st shuttle mission and 24th mission to visit the space station. The next mission, STS-123, is slated to launch in March.

Atlantis Undocks from Station

Space Shuttle Atlantis undocked from the International Space Station at 4:24 a.m. EST today, ending its almost-nine-day stay at the orbital outpost.

The crew is performing a final inspection of the orbiter’s heat shield in preparation for its return home.

STS-122 arrived at the station Feb. 9, delivering the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Columbus laboratory to the station. The crews installed Columbus Feb. 11 and conducted three spacewalks to prepare Columbus for its scientific work. They also replaced an expended nitrogen tank on the station’s P1 truss.

In addition, Atlantis delivered a new station crew member, Flight Engineer Leopold Eyharts, an ESA astronaut. He replaced astronaut Daniel Tani, who is returning to Earth aboard Atlantis.

The orbiter is scheduled to land at Kennedy Space Center, Fla., Wednesday.

In preparation for STS-123, space shuttle Endeavour arrived at the launch pad at 4:45 a.m. EST. The orbiter was secured at 6:22 a.m. in preparation for its March 11 targeted launch.
