Space historian Robert Zimmerman blasts safety provisions of the otherwise lovable (likeable?) space bill, H.R. 5382, now up for Pres. Bush's signoff.

I've been asked about the status of
Spacehab's suit against NASA for damages in connection with the Columbia disaster. I'll let you know what I find out.

Satellite radios are not yet legal in Canada, but the
NY Times reports the nonterrestrial sound wave is catching on up there. [registration required]

Jeff Foust rounds up
Congressional reaction to the findings of the National Research Council's Committee on the Assessment of Options for Extending the Life of the Hubble Space Telescope. To sum up the panel, humans, not robots, androids, mechas, replicants or cyborgs, but people must save Hubble. (By the way, anybody actually see the report? Only the press release is online.) And if you got other ideas for getting Hubble's science instruments, gyroscopes and batteries upgraded, come on out to blogspace and tell everyone.
