Red-faced over space blunder.
Heidemarie Stefanyshyn- Piper said it was "very disheartening" to lose her bag full of tools. She was trying to clean up grease that had oozed out of a grease gun in the backpack-size bag, when it and everything in it floated away on Tuesday.
The bag was one of the largest items ever lost by a spacewalking astronaut.
NASA put the price tag of the tool bag at 100,000 US dollars.
