Cape Canaveral, FL – Illegal drugs discovered at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla. have prompted an investigation into how the substance ended up at the Florida spaceport.
NASA officials found 4.2 grams of a white powdery substance on March 7. Initial on-site tests by the police indicated that it was coc aine, but the substance is now undergoing follow-up tests, said Renee Juhans of NASA's Office of Inspector General (OIG), which is conducting the inspection.

A space shuttle technician fell to his death this morning (March 14) from a launch pad at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla.
James D. Vanover, 53, a swing arm engineer for NASA contractor United Space Alliance, fell from an elevated level on Launch Pad 39A, where the space shuttle Endeavour is being prepped for launch, around 7:40 a.m. EDT (1140 GMT), the space agency said. He died shortly afterward.
Kelly said the decision to leave the side of his wife,Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, to board space shuttle Endeavour for its final flight in April is something Giffords would support.
"I know her very well and she would be very comfortable with the decision that I made," Kelly said.
Kelly is scheduled to lift off from the Kennedy Space Center Florida on April 19. He will command a crew of six astronauts, delivering the last major component to the International Space Station. He said he believes Giffords will be able to see Endeavour go.

A bad feeling is well justified. Do the odds.
The most positive thing I can say is to cancel both remaining flights and gets those old birds out to the musems.
The shuttle Discovery made a graceful landing at Kennedy Space Center today, returning from her final voyage after a remarkable three-decade life of service spanning 39 flights, 5,830 orbits of the planet, 365 days spent aloft and 148 million miles traveled. Discovery becomes NASA's first orbiter retired as the space shuttle fades into history over the next few months.
