Close Call

WASHINGTON NASA’S Mars Science Laboratory mission apparently ducked a significant delay when a crane operator accidentally lifted its composite back shell with a 2,000-lb. aluminum table attached to it. Richard Cook, deputy Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) project manager at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, says the mishap does not appear to have resulted in excessive loads on the back shell structure, which is designed to help protect the car-sized rover as it enters the Martian atmosphere.
