This report is interesting, but has there been any independent
corroboration of the account of William Kliner, or indeed and
follow-up?

Colleagues will doubtless have noted that the "September"
incident (if true), refers to STS-69, September 1995.

A simple check on NASA's shuttle missions has shown that the
following personnel (as cited by Mr. Kliner), were indeed on
board:

David M. Walker - Commander
Kenneth D. Cockrell - Pilot
James S. Voss - Payload Commander
James H. Newman Ph.D. - Mission Specialist
Michael L. Gernhardt - Mission Specialist

While this might add some substance to part of Mr. Kliner's
allegations, until such time as the audiotape undergoes
independent voice analysis to compare Commander Walker's voice
transmission with earlier recordings, such stories should be
treated with a fair degree of caution.

Would it be too much to hope that such analysis will be
undertaken, in the interests of practical and objective
investigation?

Best regards,
