PAGE 14 SECTION 1 DAI! .Y HERALD »••—*^ • *•-*•— WOfM m IWIMMI SUNDAY, MARCH 9, 2008 Assembly required for this space robot Amicintrrl I'm* CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Astronauts bound for orbit this week will dabble in science fiction, assembling a "monstrous" two-armed space station robot that will rise like Frankenstein from its transport bed. Putting together Dextre, the robot, will be one of the main jobs for the seven Endeavour astronauts, who are scheduled to blast off in the wee hours of Tuesday, less than three weeks after the last shuttle flight. They're also delivering the first piece of Japan's massive Kibo space station lab, a float- in closet for storing tools, experiments and spare parts. For the first time, each of the five major international space station partners will own a piece of the real estate. At 16 days, the mission will be NASA's longest space station trip ever and will include five spacewalks, the most ever performed while a shuttle is docked there. Three of those spacewalks will feature Dextre, which is sure to steal the show. With 11-foot arms, a shoulder span of nearly 8 feet and a height of 12 feet, the Canadian Spate Agency's Dextre — short for dexterous and pronounced like Dexter — is more than a little intimidating, at least for astronaut Garrett Reisman. "Now I wouldn't go as far to say that we're worried it's going to go run amok and take over the space station or turn evil or anything because we all know how it's operated and it doesn't have a lot of its own intelligence," Reisman told The Associated Press last week.

Man charged student's murder AUBURN, Ala. — A man arrested after a car and foot chase by police who suspected him in a string of robberies was charged with capital murder in the abduction and shooting death of an Courtney Lockhart Auburn University student, police said Saturday. Courtney Lockhart was arrested Friday in Phenix City, about 30 miles from the campus where 18-year-old Lauren Burk was a freshman. She was found shot on the side of an off-campus road Tuesday night and her car was found burning in a campus parking lot. Lockhart tried to flee Phenix City police after being pulled over Friday, Auburn Assistant Police Chief Thomas Dawson said. In a short pursuit, Lockhart's car broke down and he was captured while trying to flee on foot, Dawson said. Lockhart, 23, was charged with three capital counts accusing him of murder along with kidnapping, robbery and attempted rape, Dawson said. He wouldn't say what led police to charge Lockhart in the student's killing. Released killer charged with six murders Associated PIKIS MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A convicted killer recentiy released from prison was charged Saturday in the deaths of six people, including his brother and two children, authorities said. Jessie L. Dptson, 33, was arrested on Friday—five days after the bodies were discovered in a small rental house in a rough, low-income neighborhood called Binghampton.
