INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (AP) - A long-distance wake-up call has served as a Valentine for one of the space shuttle astronauts.
Stan Love's family this morning requested "Consider Yourself"
from the musical "Oliver!" And Love radioed back, "There's one
fewer Love on Earth this Valentine's Day."
With two of their three spacewalks now behind them, Atlantis
crew members are spending the day getting the new Columbus science
lab up and running aboard the international space station. The
activation process has been a little slow because of computer
problems, but flight directors think they've fixed the glitch.
NASA has extended the Atlantis mission by a day to give the
astronauts more time to work on the lab, Europe's main contribution
to the space station. They're now due to undock Monday.
