Subject: NASA SEEKS MYSTERY OBJECT FROM COLUMBIA

Wire services say there was a secret box they are trying to find,
probably a top secret encryption
device, but the article also says there were 80 experiments on the
mission.

The key sentence reads: A NASA spokesman said Wednesday evening that he
had
no information about the device. David Hess, a Department of Defense
shuttle payloads specialist, said it was not used on the lone military
experiment on the shuttle - an Air Force "miniature" satellite threat
reporting system."

 
Searchers Seek Mystery Object from Doomed Shuttle

By Broward Liston

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - Hundreds of searchers combed an area
in
east Texas on Thursday for a top-secret object from the doomed shuttle
Columbia while Vice President Dick Cheney paid tribute to the seven
dead
astronauts.

As it began to consider whether meteorites or even space junk played a
role
in the disintegration of the shuttle over Texas on Saturday, NASA took
steps to ensure that the investigation into the disaster would follow
the
evidence wherever it led.

In and around the tiny Texas town of Bronson, near the Louisiana border,

hundreds of National Guardsmen, federal agents, state troopers and
volunteers searched for a mystery object from the shuttle.

They searched block by block and used machetes to hack their way through

thick woods that surround the town. The searchers were given a picture
of a
faceplate from the device, which said "Secret Government Property" in
white
letters on a black background.
