thorough series of examinations aimed at finding where those pieces
Shuttle Program Director Wayne Hale says whatever those objects
were... they don't appear to have been crucial. Let's listen in on
Wednesday afternoon's briefing.
This feature is in addition to our daily news briefing --
available in either a quick "Touch And Go" format, or an expanded
Aero-Briefing -- where you'll hear these stories:

day's news. We give you the whole buzz... the news and features
