Refrigerator-Sized' Object to be Tossed From Space Station
The three-man crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will do a little housekeeping during a spacewalk next week to make way for future expansion of the laboratory.
On July 23, Expedition 15 crewmember Clayton Anderson will journey outside of the space station to throw two large hunks of unneeded equipment towards Earth, officials said during a press conference today at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.
"This is the first time we've ever done a jettison quite like this on the space station," said Bob Dempsey, NASA's lead flight director for Expedition 15, adding that smaller jettisons have been performed on past ISS and Hubble Space Telescope missions.

More drunk aliens, lol.
The one thing I don't get about the conspiracy world, is either NASA has the ultimate capability to keep a lid on the most sensitive secrets in the world, secrets that defy the average joe's ability to comprehend how they can even be kept secret...or NASA is the most incompetent organization ever concerning keeping secrets.
You guys can't have it both ways. Either NASA is populated by evil geniuses (and it would take hundreds or thousands of them to keep the lid on this stuff...which is IMPOSSIBLE) or they are incompetent. I mean, if there was really something they were covering up, they wouldn't even need to release any video, or they could loop "clean" shots anytime they want.
And how, pray tell, can you have an organization as large as NASA keep such secrets that would involved hundreds of people, people like you and me? I deal with NASA and NASA contractors from time to time. Yes, they are a complete and incompetent organization, so I can't see how they could keep a lid on half the stuff the nutters claim they are.
