Countdown starts today for shuttle
By MARCIA DUNN*
AP Aerospace Writer
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —NASA began the countdown today for Atlantis' trip into orbit with an observatory and a crew that will undertake the fust U.S. spacewalk in five years.
The countdown clock began ticking at 5:30 arn. Liftoff is scheduled for 9:18 arn. Friday. It will be the 39th shuttle flight and the fust of 1991.
NASA is proceeding despite hairline cracks on the hinges of the shuttle's flapper doors.
The two doors must snap shut once the big external tank drops off shortly after liftoff, or else the ship could be destroyed during its fiery return to Earth. Engineers determined the cracks were too small to endanger the
Atlantis’ five astronauts will release a $600 million observatory during the five-day mission. It will circle Earth for at least two years in search of gamma rays, the most energetic radiation known. Such a survey has never been done.
At 17 tons, the observatory is the heaviest civilian spacecraft ever carried by a shuttle. Only military spy satellites have weighed more.
Two of the astronauts will also go outside the craft for six hours, testing equipment that would be needed to build and maintain a space station.
NASA's last spacewalk was in December 1985. One of the spacewalkers then was Jerry Ross; he will be the first out of Atlantis this time. Jay Apt will follow.

AUSTIN (AP) — Eleanor Ruder left New York last seek anticipating helping her pregnant daughter, Judy Ruder of Austin, through the labors of childbirth.
She just didn’t expect to help so much.
The 56-year-old retired banker delivered her grandson late Easter Sunday, following telephone instructions from an Austin Emergency Medical Services worker.
“When the call first came in, I thought it was a term pregnancy,” said Krisi Dinkla, the communications specialist who coached Eleanor Ruder as she delivered her second grandchild. ‘‘But as she (Eleanor) continued talking, I realized that it was an imminent delivery.
"She told me right away that she didn't know what to do, but she did wonderfully. The baby, a boy, was bom about two minutes after we started the conversation.”
EMS technicians, who had been delayed by another call, arrived within eight minutes and took the 6-pound, 10-ounce baby and his mother to St. David's Hospital.
“It was great,” said Ms. Dinkla, who has worked for Austin EMS for five years. "My first one. I feel elated. It is nice being able to help.'*

Some lawmakers are questioning whether the measure focuses more on punishment rather than on alcohol treatment.
“My personal opinion is you don't want to cast aside treatment but treatment in and of itself is meaningless
unless there is this threat hanging over their head ... of an immediate loss (such as the revocation of their driven license)," Reinter said.
License recovation in other states has been successful, he said.
Truan told the committee the administrative license revocation has been successful in 29 states and is necessary for Texas to receive $3.2 million per year over the next five years in federal traffic safety funds.
