SUMMARY: After installing their new railcar on the International Space Station yesterday, NASA wanted to take it for a spin. The railcar - which will be used in future phases of the station's construction - rolled along the track for a few minutes but then it stalled. Controllers suspect the car drifted slightly in the low gravity causing its magnetic sensors to break contact with the aluminum rails.
