A machine uses infrared frequencies to warm a high-tech composite material being formed into an internal brace for the mini-space shuttle designed by Sierra Nevada Corp. - one of three companies working on spacecraft to get NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Shuttle. Lockheed Martin Corp. will also be making wings and rudder for the Dream Chaser spacecraft at Michoud Assembly Facility in eastern New Orleans _ a campus where thousands of people worked in the 1980s to build space shuttle fuel tanks.
