With recent speculation that NASA is planning a manned mission to an asteroid to bring back samples of space rock, it would be informative to know how astronauts will travel there. The mission itself will use the new program that NASA is developing called Project Constellation. The program, which replaces the current Space Transportation System (STS) involving the Space Shuttle fleet, will extend manned space activities of the United States from low-Earth orbit to such destinations as the Moon, Mars, asteroids, and possibly other more distant celestial bodies.

Discovery undocks from the International Space Station

The Space Shuttle Discovery has undocked from the newly overhauled International Space Station and is preparing for a final heat shield inspection before returning to Earth.

Published in Space
Astronauts aboard Space Shuttle Discovery—Space Transportation System-116 (STS-16) mission—are working to fix a troublesome solar array that was first installed onto the International Space Station (ISS) in late 2000 by the STS-97 crew. The port solar array on the P6 truss is causing problems because it is not retracting like is normally should. It is being retracted and placed into a storage box so that astronauts on a future shuttle mission in 2007 can move it to a new location.
