Then, LA Times (sub req'd): The Amish Paradox. A very high-fat diet in a population with very low obesity. The reason? Heavy exercise (I'm shocked, shocked). Interesting tidbits: Amish chosen for this study because they're a population that allows a modern-day glimpse at what lief was like 150 years ago. No between-meal snacking. Amish communities with lessened exercise (woodworking instead of farming, for instance) had higher incidence of obesity.
The leak appears to be at the main window in the U.S.-built Destiny laboratory module. A flexible cable called a vacuum jumper, used to help equalize air pressure across the multipaned window, showed telltale signs of leakage where the hose entered a steel harness at the edge of the window.
The Mars ’98 missions, developed according to the so-called faster, better, cheaper philosophy championed by then-NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin, had a combined budget of $328 million. Donna Shirley, who managed the Mars ’98 program but left NASA prior to the loss of the two spacecraft, said the effort was undermined by inadequate funding. The Mars ’98 spaceraft development budget was about half that of the successful Mars Pathfinder lander and Mars Global Surveyor orbiter missions, she said. “We ended up with about twice as many requirements, she said. “I tried to tell people over and over again that that wasn’t going to work.”
