ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is hoping to avoid the complicated repair of the damaged starboard solar alpha rotary joint (SARJ) mechanism of the International Space Station (ISS). The 10-spacewalk job on the SARJ would cost about $50 million. All pressurized onboard oxygen now budgeted for emergency ISS spacewalks would be consumed, plus parts of the final two space shuttle missions on the manifest.
