Will Blast Off For ISS In 2007
Columbus is about to
discover America... well, in a manner of speaking. Construction on
the International Space Station's Columbus module -- the European
Space Agency's major contribution to the ISS -- is finished.
Columbus will be flown from Bremen, Germany, to the Kennedy
Space Center in Florida during the second half of next year, for
launch aboard a future space shuttle mission.
The ESA reports that during the module's planned 10-year
operational lifetime, scientific researchers in Europe, with the
help of the astronauts onboard Columbus and a Europe-wide support
infrastructure on the ground, will be able to conduct a vast
program of experiments in the areas of the life and physical
sciences, materials science, fundamental physics and technology
It's a big achievement for the ESA -- and accordingly, the
Europeans are making a big deal of its completion. In fact, there's
a huge ceremony scheduled for May 2 -- and German Chancellor
Angela Merkel is expected to attend.
