NASA announced Tuesday its engineers are having difficulty
pinpointing the source of an air leak detected this weekend in the
cabin of the shuttle Endeavour, which now sits on pad 39-A at
Kennedy Space Center, awaiting a planned August 7 launch.
Blame it on "financial idealism." That's the word from the new
head of RKK Energia, the Russian company that produces the bulk of
spacecraft used by that country, following the ouster of the
company's former chief Tuesday.
