Good Morning,
So did anyone sign up yet to take that space flight? Yeah, 
I didn't either. :-) Let's keep the week moving with some
more interesting articles.

Until Tomorrow,
Erin

	     NASA, USDA sign space research pact

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture have signed an agreement to enable 
space-based plant research. The memorandum of understanding 
was signed last week by NASA Administrator Michael Griffin and 
Secretary of Agriculture Edward Schafer. The agreement is 
designed to allow the USDA's Agricultural Research Service to 
conduct plant-related research on the International Space 
Station.  "The research will improve our understanding of 
biological cellular mechanisms and may lead to creative new 
ways to improve American agriculture, protect the environment 
and contribute to better human health," NASA said. The 
agreement is the second of what NASA says it hopes will be many 
similar agreements with other federal agencies, universities 
and private sector research organizations. The first NASA 
partnership agreement for use of the station as a national 
laboratory was signed last year with the National Institutes 
of Health.

	         NASA evaluates new wing sensor

The U.S. space agency said it is evaluating an advanced, fiber 
optic-based sensing technology that could aid development of 
active wing shape control. The National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration said controlling a wing's shape during flight 
would allow it to take advantage of aerodynamics and improve 
overall aircraft efficiency. "The Fiber Optic Wing Shape Sensor 
system measures and displays the shape of the aircraft's wings 
in flight," NASA said. "The system also has potential for 
improving aircraft safety when the technology is used to monitor 
the aircraft structure." Flight tests on NASA's Ikhana, a 
modified Predator-B unmanned aircraft adapted for civilian 
research, are under way at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center 
at Edwards Air Force Base in California. The space agency said 
the tests represent one of the first comprehensive flight 
validations of fiber optic sensor technology. "Generations of 
aircraft and spacecraft could benefit from work with the new 
sensors if the sensors perform in the sky as they have in the 
laboratory," said Lance Richards, the project's leader.

		 Ares rocket parachute is tested

The U.S. space agency says it has successfully completed the 
first drop test of a drogue parachute for its Ares I rocket.
The drogue parachute is designed to slow the descent of the 
rocket's spent first-stage motor, cast off by the Ares I rocket 
during its climb to space, permitting recovery of the motor for 
use on other Ares I flights. Last week's test marked an "early 
milestone in development and production of the Ares I rocket, 
the first launch vehicle for NASA's Constellation Program that 
will send explorers to the International Space Station, the 
moon and beyond in coming decades," the space agency said.
Engineers from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, 
Ala., managed the team that conducted the drogue chute test July 
24 at the U.S. Army's Yuma Proving Ground near Yuma, Ariz.
