Stolen NASA Laptop
from thedailywh.at ............ A NASA laptop stolen last March contained the codes used to control the International Space Station, NASA inspector general Paul Martin told the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. To make matters worse, the laptop was entirely unencrypted .
Martin reported that 48 of the agency’s laptops and mobile devices were reported lost or stolen between 2009 and 2011, including some that contained third-party research, social security numbers, and data on NASA’s Constellation program and Orion spacecraft.
Even more devices could be lost, but never reported.
The Inspector General cited these numbers in support of speeding up an agency-wide policy of full-disk encryption for the laptops and other mobile devices NASA gives its staff.
He didn’t explain why the codes to the ISS weren’t stored on one of the computers the agency has already encrypted.

"There is also a river called Helikon [in Pieria]. (...) But, they go on to say, the women who killed Orpheus wished to wash off in it the blood-stains, and thereat the River sank underground, so as not to lend its waters to cleanse manslaughter."
