Progress Launches to Help Bring Down Mir
PROGRESS LAUNCHES TO HELP BRING DOWN MIR
After a few delays, a Russian Progress cargo ship finally launched early this morning from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan - it's expected to dock automatically with Mir on Saturday. If anything goes wrong with the docking on Saturday, a crew of cosmonauts is standing by to launch and help repair things manually. The Russian Space Agency expects to use the Progress' engines to drop Mir out of orbit on March 6, 2001, and crash it into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Australia.
