CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A fresh batch of 2,478 tiny jellyfish was counted, rinsed and ready to load onto space shuttle Columbia today for NASA’s third attempt to launch the biomedical research mission.
Columbia is scheduled to blast off at 8 a m. EDT Wednesday with the jellyfish as well as 30 white rats and seven astronauts. The first two tries were thwarted by equipment trouble.
NASA test director Mike Lembach said the latest countdown, which began Monday, was going well.
The countdown was halted less than an hour before scheduled liftoff Saturday because of a faulty navigational unit.
Bad fuel temperature sensors and computer components stopped the first countdown on May 21, a day before the scheduled liftoff.
Dorothy Spangcnberg, a biologist from Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Va., who’s in charge of the jellyfish, said the delays were frustrating but not surprising.
“We know this is a complicated operation, so we just planned for that,” she said. “We’re in for the long haul, if necessary.”
Spangcnberg needs 2,478 new jellyfish, at just the right stage of development, for every launch attempt.
As of Monday, Spangcnberg had rinsed her new spaccbound creatures five times — she wants them “super clean.” She also counted them twice
“to be sure we have the exact number.”
She and her team planned one more rinse and one more count today before putting the jellyfish in water-filled plastic bottles and bags for flight.
During the nine-day mission 184 miles above Earth, the astronauts will videotape the behavior of the jellyfish. Iodine will be added to the water of some jellyfish to induce development.
The jellyfish and the rats will be examined after Columbia returns lo Earth so scientists can better understand how the weightlessness of space affects living things.
Most of the mission’s experiments involve Columbia’s human crew. Three doctors and one cell biologist will draw blood from erne another and monitor each other’s hearts, blood pressure and lung and kidney function.
Cardiologist F. Andrew Gaffney has had a catheter threaded from his arm to a large blood vessel above his heart since Friday. Doctors decided to leave it in place until Wednesday’s launch attempt.
Gaffney will be the first person to fly in space with a catheter. He will remove the plastic tube with help from the other physicians about eight hours into the flight following blood pressure checks.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is particularly interested in space motion sickness, a medical mystery. More than half of all astronauts become nauseated and dizzy during their first few days in space.
DEAK ABBY: About 12 years ago, I gave a beautiful handmade quilt to my nephew and his wife as their wedding gift. I made it myself, and everyone who saw it said it was a work of art.
I did not deliver it myself. Another relative carried it to n.y nephew's home. I got a thank-you for the gift, but it was not said that the gift was a handmade quilt.
To make a long story short, a few months ago I was at this nephew’s home and I saw the quilt hanging on a quilt stand in their bedroom. I asked who made the stand and my nephew’s wife said. “My brother made the stand, and my grandmother made the quilt.”
I asked. “Where is the one I gave you?" She said, “This is the only one we have."
Now, the grandmother has lived with that lie on her conscience all tiles- years — letting people believe that she made it when she knows
perfectly well that I made it.
My advice to anyone who has a nile gilt to give: Deliver it yourself! And. Abby, don’t you think somebody owes me an apology?
STILL HURT IN OHIO
DEAR STILL HU KT: Good advice! But it wouldn't hurt to have enclosed a gift card with the quilt with a brief message: “Made with love from Aunt ( ) to ( ).”
Since this is irritating you, why don't you set the record straight and tell your nephew and his wife that you made the quilt that was delivered to them by another relative, who took the credit for having made it?
DEAK ABBY: The copy of “Please God, Tm Only 17 'appeared iii today’s Chicago Tribune, and its appearance was very timely. Just yesterday. I confiscated my 17-year-old son’s driver s license after overhearing a

Born today, you usually think more of those around you than you do about yourself You always have your mind on the well-being of others, and your knack for safety is legendary You never want to see anyone get hurt — either as a result of accident, malice. or simple negi.gence You are not. however, completely selfless, indeed when it comes to profit and financial gains, you are a self-promoter of the kind who knows no equal As a result, you will no doubt amass something of a fortune throughout your lifetime
You are sure of yourself when others are suffering from insecurity or a lack of confidence but you will never take advantage of another s weakness You Uke to compete with others when all is equal you enjoy tests of skill and stamina rather than those which depend upon luck or misfortune
