Writer WASHINGTON AP NASA officials in their first estimate of the financial im pact of the Challenger acci dent told Congress today they would need at least million to pay for modification of the remaining three space shuttles Dr James Fletcher the new NASA administrator said the figure was tentative but told a Senate subcommittee At least this much well be The figure does not include the cost of a new orbiter to replace the Challenger which blew up on Jan 28 killing its sevenmember crew Fletcher told a Senate appropriations subcommittee he favors con struction of a new orbiter but the administration has not yet submitted a formal request to Congress The 9676 million outlined by NASA controller Thomas Newman includes million to pay salvage and in vestigative costs arising from the Challenger accident million to maintain a steady supply of spare parts and million for corrective ac tions That includes million to redesign the solid fuel rocket booster system which is believed to be the cause of the Challenger acci dent million for changes on the space shuttle main engine and million for changes in the orbiters steer ing braking and other systems Newman also said his re quest includes a million contingency The request was some million more than the million that sources said was being included for similar pur poses in a proposal by Sen Jake Garn Fletcher told the subcom mittee that NASA has not yet decided whether it will recom mend a redesign of the shuttle to permit the crew to escape during the initial two minutes of flight the period in which the booster is ignited The Challenger was not equiped with such a system meaning the crew members would not have been able to escape even if they had known their lives were in danger The investigation of the ac cident spawned new activity in Congress on Wednesday as the company that manufac tures the shuttle booster rocket came under growing criticism for reassigning two of its engineers who opposed the
