NASA to use NIMA satellites to photograph Shuttle

NASA and the National Imaging and Mapping Agency (NIMA) have agreed to photograph the shuttle in space without NASA haveing to make a formal request. NASA was offered a chance to take pictures of Columbia, but refused because they thought no damage was done. Sean O'Keefe said he would not make a decision about whether these images might actually have helped determine the extent of damage to Columbia. O'Keefe also said NASA was pursuing similar agreements with the Air Force to photograph the Shuttle with its ground-based telescopes.
