Something is wrong with the scaling of the picture on the page, I'm not familiar enough with Wikipedia to fix it. --188.8.131.52 01:33, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
About this statement "Astronaut Sullivan became the first woman to walk in space ... "
I think it should read "Astronaut Sullivan became the first American woman to walk in space ..." because Svetlana Savitskaya of USSR did it a few months earlier in July 1984. See http://www.spacetoday.org/History/ManInSpaceFirsts/FirstGals.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svetlana_Savitskaya .
Terra 3 Laser - Fact or Fiction?
Is there any definitive proof that the Soviets fired a "warning shot" at Challenger with a low-powered laser? I've combed the Internet for weeks and haven't found any tangible proof. I've read the official STS 41-G Mission Report  and it makes absolutely no mention of the laser or any discomfort (let alone temporary blinding!) of the crew. Methinks this is something that belongs on Snopes.com . Kc8wvj 14:26, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Sullivan Second Women to Walk in Space?
This article says she is the second women to perform an EVA in space, but according to NASA, and many other sources she was the first. I changed it in the article, but if someone has a definate answer be sure to change it back. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:51, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
- Svetlana Savitskaya made a spacewalk from Salyut 7 on 25 July 1984 before this flight, which makes Sullivan the second female to make an EVA. I've changed it back. -MBK004 23:00, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
First mission with IMAX camera?
This article mentioned that STS-41-G was the first mission to carry an IMAX camera, however STS-41-D was the first mission to carry an IMAX camera as is mentioned in that article. I have corrected it to say second instead of first. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:51, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
