This Week at NASA …

REDEDICATION - GRC
The Glenn Research Center hosted a rededication ceremony for the Space Power Facility at the Plum Brook Station in Sandusky, Ohio. The facility is the world’s largest space environment simulation chamber. It's being modified to test Orion, the exploration spacecraft being designed to carry humans back to the moon. The Space Power Facility will simulate environmental conditions Orion will experience during launch, in-orbit operations and atmospheric re-entry.

HUBBLE MISSION - JSC
Sept. 10, 2008 is the target launch date for the fifth Hubble Space Telescope Servicing mission. NASA managers have planned an 11-day mission for the STS-125 crew. They'll fly aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis to the space-based observatory. Atlantis' seven astronauts will make repairs that'll improve Hubble's capabilities through 2013.

LOST IN SPACE - KSC
Lost in Space Robot SOT: "Model B-9. Designed for Earth Voyagers engaged in astro expeditions."

Remember the robot from the television series "Lost In Space?" He's now a permanent resident of the Kennedy Space Center' Visitors Complex. Sheila Allen, the widow of "Lost In Space" creator Irwin Allen, donated the B-9 robot to the complex.

Lost In Space Robot SOT: "Warning, alien approaching."

The robot's "voice" is that of actor Dick Tufeld. "Lost In Space" ran on CBS from 1965 to 1968.

And that's This Week At NASA.
