  • Reuters' Steve James is reporting that Spacehab, Inc., is planning to build, launch and deploy a media module on the International Space Station. By 2002, they hope to broadcast news, entertainment and advertising from this multimedia module, which they plan to call 'Enterprise'.

Thanks go out to Gustavo Leao for this!
