Shuttle Crew Plans Extra Inspection

Associated Press Writer

Discovery's crew and NASA managers also said Thursday that they are optimistic they will be able to add an extra day in space for a third spacewalk by astronauts Piers Sellers and Mike Fossum, allowing them to test repair techniques on the space shuttle's thermal protection system. A decision will not be made until the crew is in space.
