Bangladesh plans to build its first satellite

The astronauts began their high-priority girder work Wednesday, a two-day job that will culminate with the installation of two new solar wings at the orbiting outpost. The new wings will bring the 10-year-old space station to full power, which is critical for boosting science research and allowing the crew to double to six. (AP Photo/NASA)
