Commentary: 'It's Time to Soar Again' - Space.com  I believe we must look farther ahead and deeper into the cosmos. We’ve trolled the shallows of low-Earth orbit long enough, and I agree with President Bush that the time has come to set sail once again on the seas of space. I had the incredible fortune of making two trips to the Moon during the Apollo Program. But I think all of us who shared that privilege realized that what we were doing was just the beginning. 
Prominent Business Leaders, Scientists on Bush's Mars-Moon Commission - Space.com  President George W. Bush announced Friday the business leaders, scientists and other spaceflight experts who will advise him on how to carry out the specifics of his new vision for putting humans back on the Moon and eventually on Mars. Carleton S. "Carly" Fiorina, the CEO of Hewlett-Packard, will serve on the nine-member commission.

New ozone threat: Whistle blown on Pakistan's illegal trade in CFCs  - BBC  The border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, already a key route for the heroin trade, is being used for a new type of smuggling - chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Production is still allowed for "basic needs production" for developing countries to use in air conditioning equipment and refrigeration equipment. But now, a black market for Europe-produced CFCs has sprung up in some Asian countries. Salem Mutuwala, director of Karachi-based Symphony Limited told BBC World Service's One Planet that "at least 20 to 25" Pakistani businesses were trading in CFCs smuggled in as part of the heroin trade.
