NASA space
station plan
called 'risky'

plan to build a space station with the
shuttle will be difficult and risky,
and could lead to the loss of still
another space shuttle orbiter, a
National Research Council commit-
tee said in a report released yesterday.
The study said the space agency's
plans to build a space station by the
mid-1990s "rank as the most am-
bitious and lengthy task NASA has
ever undertaken," and that to be suc-
cessful it cannot be constructed "on
the cheap."
Using the space shuttle to build
the station, said the report, would
pose about a 60 percent probability
of the loss of another orbiter. It said
the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration should prepare for
that loss by planning to build still
another reusuable spacecraft.
"We should expect to lose an
orbitier, not necessarily with ac-
companying loss of life, about once
every five to eight years," said the
In a reply to the report, NASA
disagreed that use of the shuttle to
build the station would be risky.
NASA said it has recently redesigned
the deployment plan for the space
station and has "a high degree of
confidence that the space station can
be successfully deployed with the
current shuttle system."
The report, the result of a
four-month study commissioned

by the White House, the National
Security Council and NASA, gen-
erally supported NASA's current
space station design plan, but found
that the station will cost more than
NASA estimates and will require a
closer evaluation of the risks in-
volved. It said to be successful the
program will require a long-term
commitment by the government and
the American people.
NASA already is building an
orbiter to replace Challenger, the
shuttle craft that exploded in January
1986 with the loss of seven crew
NRC committee chairman Rober
Seamans said that NASA should
prepare for any future loss by
building still another orbiter, bring-
ing the eventual shuttle fleet to five.
He also said NASA should do a
"much more thoughtful study of the
risks" in building the station and
determine how many spare parts be
built to allow for losses in the sta-
tion assembly.
The NRC report said building of
spare parts and test hardware could
add $200 million to $3.9 billion to
the cost of the station, now
estimated at $14.6 billion.
In reply to the report, however,
NASA said the additional cost
estimate in the study "is much too
high." The agency put the additional
cost for testing and spare parts at
only $200 million.

Transportation Secretary Elizabeth dole speaks with reporters

Informed President Reagan that she will resign her post at the end of

WASHINGTON (AP) - Elizabeth Dole announced yesterday she is
resigning as transportation secretary and plans to "do everything I can"
to help her husband, Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) to win the presidency
next year.
After meeting with President Reagan for nearly 15 minuts, Ms. Dole
told reporters she will leave the Cabinet Oct. 1 and begin full-time.
campaigning for her husband with a 12-state swing through the South.
"I want to be a major part in the campaign and do everything I can to
be helpful," she said.
Some Dole strategists have been pushing for weeks to get Ms. Dole,
an energetic and popular campaigner, more actively involved. She has
been one of the most sought-after speakers in the Reagan Cabinet and:
in recent months has spent much of her time on the road. Mr. Dole is.
expected to declare his candidacy later this year.
At times, Ms. Dole has been considered possible vice-presidential
timber, and during the 1984 Republican convention, there was some
talk - sometimes only half in jest - of a "Dole-Dole" ticket.
"I've been for a Dole-Dole ticker just for economy purposes," the
senator sometimes joked in speeches. "We could have one house, one;
limousine, and one airplane."
In Wisconsin, vice President George Bush said he wasn't worrie4,
about Ms. Dole's campaigning skills. "Listen, have you met my wife,
She's good, she's tough, she's able. I have a secret weapon myself,
Bush told reporters.
Reagan called Mrs. Dole "invaluable" but said he understood why
she was leaving.
Her departure creates a major Cabinet vacancy with only 16 month,
left in Reagan's term.
The Transportation Department has been in the spotlight amid rising
complaints from airline travelers and concerns about air safety. Hear
resignation comes only a few months after a change in leadership at the
Federal Aviation Administration, part of her department.
