Astronauts Opening Space Station Research Lab

Astronauts from the space shuttle Atlantis are formally opening the new laboratory at the International Space Station Tuesday.

Crewmembers set up electrical and data lines linking the new Columbus laboratory to the station. A European astronaut briefly floated inside the module for the first time. The crew also prepared for a second spacewalk to perform additional work on the lab Wednesday.

Also today, officials for the U.S. space agency NASA told the shuttle crewmembers they would not have to repair a loose thermal blanket near the shuttle's tail, saying the blanket does not pose a flight safety issue.

Astronauts conducted their first spacewalk of the current mission Monday to install the European research laboratory.

The Columbus laboratory will be used for a wide variety of experiments, including research on the impact of space travel on humans.

French Air Traffic Controllers Strike Continues for 2nd Day

French air traffic controllers are in the second of a planned five-day strike that has disrupted some flights at Paris-Orly airport.

Half of the flights leaving Orly were canceled Tuesday morning, while others experienced delays. Air traffic is reported normal at Charles de Gaulle airport.

The General Labor Federation union called the strike to protest government plans to centralize air traffic control.

The strike is the latest labor action to snarl air traffic in and around Paris in recent months. Air France cabin workers went on strike in October for five days over pay and working conditions. In December and January, Air France ground crews joined protests by unions representing more than five million French workers.

Those job actions were called to protest President Nicolas Sarkozy's announced plans to streamline the public sector by not replacing half of all retiring civil servants.
