"Columbus Given Exterior Science"????
Really? Isn't there a good amount of science going on already on the exterior and interior of something so sophisticated as a space-station?
Turns out they meant that the Columbus part of the ISS is being fit with some new apparatus for performing experiments. Was that so hard to say? What's with the vagaries Brits? Just kidding, I love you guys, and the BBC.
It's actually a cool set of experiments. They are testing how the solar environment affects various biological samples.
