STS-114 Crew Concerns over "Culture"

Crew: NASA's attitudes still need to change, USA Today

"Collins said that before relying on repair materials to get home, she would like to see them thoroughly tested. Her crew plans to perform tests of some repair techniques, then, after landing, hand the samples to engineers for more tests. "I have always believed that a repair method should be tested in the vacuum of space, brought back home and run through ... a test facility," Collins said.In February, astronauts said that rather than trusting an untested repair, they would prefer to use the space station as a lifeboat in an emergency. NASA estimates that Collins's crew could survive nearly seven weeks on the station."
