Hey, this is neat. The headlines indicate the big news is that an Israeli is a part of the shuttle crew. I think the big headline ought to be that this is the first shuttle mission in quite some time that is not servicing Hubble or the ISS. Near the bottom, the article explains some of the science experiments the shuttle crew will be performing. I think these are very cool!

Thanks for the Link Neb,

I listened to NPR this morning as they reported the fact about this being the first mission not going to ISS or HST in quite some time. They mentioned that there would be 80 some experiments performed and I wondered what some of them were.
