Flight-deck video, taken by members of the Space Shuttle Columbia crew on Feb. 1, was released at 1 p.m. EST today on NASA Television. The videotape was recovered February 6 near Palestine, Texas, during search and recovery efforts after the tragedy.

We are starting to get some direction on what will happen on ISS over the next few months and how this will affect the ARISS program. What I describe to you is very tentative. Things continue to be very dynamic as the Columbia accident investigation unfolds.
I saw yesterday's e-mail traffic on the SAREX reflector and I thought I would clarify some items.
First, it is good to see that this reflector is still active. For a while there, I only thought that Dave Larsen, Arthur Rowe and I were the only members of this reflector (hi hi).
Just received this info from Mario VA2VA:
I worked Don Pettit this morning, Feb 27, at 1009 UTC. This was only the 2nd time I've heard him on the air (last time was Jan 5th) though I am aware that he has been on at least one or two other times making random contacts. No, not as active as previous crews... but that's the way it goes sometimes. Good luck!
