“I am pleased to hear of the successful outcome of this morning’s spacewalk to repair Shuttle Discovery,” said Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Science and Space.

“This spectacular and unprecedented maneuver demonstrates the new capabilities available to space shuttle crews to deal with potential issues once in orbit.

I look forward to continued progress as NASA prepares for the return of Discovery next week.”
