Question of the Day
The 10 space travelers cheered as they put the final items in Raffaello, the Italian-made cargo canister that’s the size of a bus.
More than 5,600 pounds of old space station equipment, packing foam and other trash will return to Earth this week inside Raffaello.
“We’re full,” reported astronaut Sandra Magnus. “Everybody pitched in.”
The compartment will be moved from the International Space Station back onto space shuttle Atlantis early Monday. It carried up to 9,400 pounds of food, clothes and other household goods - a year’s worth of supplies.
Atlantis will undock from the space station Tuesday, after a visit of more than a week, and aim for a Thursday landing back in Florida to end 30 years of shuttle flight.
Mission Control gave the four shuttle astronauts some time off Sunday to relax before heading home, but they spent it packing.
Lemonade stand shut down by police
MIDWAY — Police have shut down a lemonade stand run by three girls trying to save up for a trip to a water park, saying they didn’t have a business license or the required permits.
Midway Police Chief Kelly Morningstar says police also didn’t know how the lemonade was made, who made it or what was in it.
The girls had been operating for one day when Chief Morningstar and another officer cruised by.
The girls needed a business license, peddler’s permit and food permit to operate, even on residential property. The permits cost $50 a day or $180 per year.
Casity Dixon, 14, says the three had to listen to police and shut down. The girls are now doing chores and yard work to make money.
