 The major US stock indexes were all up more than 2% at one point on news of positive development from today's debt crisis emergency talks. Among the heads of France, Germany and Greece, the subject of the teleconference. As Eleanor Beardsley reports, Greek officials are assuring its partners that the country would meet its obligations and follow through on promised austerity measures.

 
Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou assured German Chancellor Angela Merkle and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, the eurozone's strongest nations, that his country would do what was necessary to reduce its deficit. And all three leaders confirmed that Greece was an integral part of the eurozone. Eurozone nations approved a second massive bailout for Greece in July upon condition that Greece would meet its austerity commitments. But despite attempts by European officials to stem the debt crisis, it only seems to worsen. In France Wednesday, two banks were downgraded for holding two much Greek debt. And despite protests in the streets, the Italian parliament gave final approval to a national austerity package. Meanwhile, top EU officials have warned that the failure of the euro could wreck the European Union. For NPR News, I'm Eleanor Beardsley in Paris.

Investigators found that the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon could have been prevented if not for system deficiencies and crew mistakes leading up to the April 2010 explosion. They cite poor maintenance of equipment, the bypassing of alarm systems and a culture that did not emphasize safety. The report also finds BP made critical management and operational mistakes that led to the failure of the well's blowout preventer, resulting in nearly five million barrels of oil flowing  into the Gulf of Mexico. Investigators say the government also shares some of the blame for a lack of proper oversight and regulation of deepwater drilling. Debbie Elliott, NPR News.
 
Housing Republicans are probing a more than half-billion-dollar federal loan to a now-bankrupt solar company. Those investigating say the Obama administration may have rushed a federal review of the loan to Solyndra which President Obama had cited as an example of how his economic stimulus bill would grow jobs through investments in renewable energy.

Three of the six men crew aboard the International Space Station is scheduled to return to Earth later this week. Their replacements were supposed to fly up to the station next week. But as NPR's Joe Palca reports, that's not gonna happen.
 
The two cosmonauts and one NASA astronaut replacing the departing crew members were supposed to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on September 22nd. Russian space agency officials have delayed the launch while they investigate why an unmanned cargo vehicle carrying supplies to the space station crashed into the Altai Mountains. According to the ITAR-Tass news agency, the new launch date is November 12th. If there's a further delay, it's possible that the station will have to be abandoned at least temporarily since the crew members remaining on the station will have to come home by early next year at the latest.
