SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6. 1997 5A THE PALM BEACH POST Columbia returns with satellite and plenty of questions Wiat's done is done, and so we got on with the mission and we didn't worry about it. That's what well do the next couple of weeks ...try to figure out what exactly happened.' KEVIN KREGEL Columbia commander NASA's Winston Scott and Japan's Takao Doi caught the 3,000-pound Spartan with their gloved hands on Nov. 24. It was the first such rescue in 5V years and went off without a hitch. Because Scott and Doi didn't have time during the spacewalk to thoroughly test a station-building crane or release the robotic camera, NASA ordered a second outing. The free-flying, remote-controlled camera, tested Wednesday, was an outright success. The extendible, 17'foot crane worked better with small objects than with big ones, suggesting it might need to be redesigned before the final version flies late next year. crew wasted time moping in orbit. "What's done is done, and so we got on with the mission and we didn't worry about it," he said. That's what well do the next couple of weeks ... try to figure out what exactly happened." NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin preferred to dwell on the crew's successes notably science experiments and the debut of a roving, robotic camera intended for the soon-to-be-built international space station. "Yes, we had a problem with the Spartan," Goldin said. "But you know what? We didn't lose it The astronauts went out and did what Americans do tough stuff." break, bringing back a $10 million science satellite that got away from them and required a daring spacewalk rescue. Mission Control skipped the customary congratulations. The greeting was short but spoke volumes: "Welcome home, Columbia. Excellent landing." NASA expects the Spartan satellite to hold the answers to what went wrong in orbit It will be impounded as soon as it is unloaded from Columbia next week, and its computer links analyzed by investigators. The sun-watching satellite never received a crucial computer command before it was released from Columbia on Nov. 21, either because of crew error or The Associated Press CAPE CANAVERAL Their mission over but hardly accomplished, space shuttle Columbia's astronauts returned Friday to a lukewarm welcome and an inquiry into their bungled release of a satellite. , ' Commander Kevin Kregel tried to make the best of it. , "We had a very interesting and eventful 16 days," he said after emerging from Columbia. "We had a little bit of downtrodden times there. But together as a team ... I think we ended up with a very super mission." '. The shuttle and its international crew of six glided through a; clear, chilly sky just after day bad software. In a cascade of foul-ups, Spartan malfunctioned, and an attempt to grab it with the shuttle robot arm sent it into an uncontrollable spin. It gathered no information about the sun. Rookie astronaut Kalpana Chawla, who was in charge of the satellite and operated the robot arm, said from orbit that to the best of her knowledge she sent all the necessary commands. "We're not going to speculate," Kregel said several hours after landing. "All we know is our piece of the pie of what happened." Kregel said no one on his Saturday 7 V V V rO GU ..j ,,;,r,,T:,,,,: i j. , . ,:: Any Home Sale-priced Item Any Men's, Young Men's or Kids' Sale-priced Item I Any Women's Fashion, Intimate Apparel, Jewelry, I Accessory or Shoe Sale-priced Item" 0 l lll! 811400 010029 o iffTo -JilJliel Ii em II 2 811 40001 0029 811400"010029 ffff 1 o"ai;fi7;,,K7;fi7fi . ii Q1 ;fi7i;"R7;R7K" 915675"675676 Sale-priced items.
