The first nest of endangered Kemp’s ridley turtle eggs rescued from Florida and Alabama Gulf Coast beaches threatened by the BP oil spill makes its way to the Kennedy Space Center. After incubation is complete, 22 baby turtles are released into the Atlantic Ocean off Kennedy. Among This Week’s other stories: the last external tank built for the Space Shuttle Program arrives in Florida from New Orleans; a Star Trek legend visits the Johnson Space Center; and the world’s first space partnership between the U.S. and the Soviet Union is remembered 30 years later.
