: Italy has delivered the second of three Multi-Purpose Logistics Modules to NASA. These will be used by Space Shuttles to ferry supplies and equipment to the International Space Station. At regular intervals, a shuttle will take a full MPLM up to the station and bring back an empty one; the station crews will thus be able to keep new equipment stored until it is ready for installation.--Stephen V Cole

Christmas is around the corner. StrategyPage needs your help to make it a merry one for our content elves. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, the content elves may recieve no gifts from Santa Dunnigan.

What can you do to help the content elves have a merry Christmas? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
