Space critics blasts Endeavor flight listen08/22/07 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:
The Space Shuttle Endeavor glided to a safe landing at the Kennedy Space Center yesterday despite a small but deep gouge in two heat tiles on the underside of the right wing.
Much of the media attention seemed to focus on Barbara Morgan, a female astronaut aboard Endeavor. The former teacher was the backup to Christa McAuliff, the first teacher to attempt space travel.
Bruce Gagnon is coordinator of Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. He says one reason why media reports on the space shuttle are so bland is that NASA is not telling the American people the truth about the missions.
Gagnon also discussed the cost of the shuttle missions.
