Description

T/I: 10:28:33 GS 10:35:16


The astronauts on the US space shuttle Columbia spotted their
runaway Italian satellite early on Friday (1/3). They took some
final pictures and videotapes of the object, which was sent adrift
into space after a tether broke. "It's the brightest object in the sky after the sun," Claude Nicollier told flight controllers at the Johnson Space Centre in Houston.
