Russian Cabinet Approves Plan to Deorbit Mir

RUSSIAN CABINET APPROVES PLAN TO DEORBIT MIR

The Russian Cabinet has approved a plan to crash the 14-year old Mir spacestation into the Pacific Ocean sometime in February. The likely scenario from this point is that an unmanned Progress cargo ship will dock with the station in January, and then fire its thrusters to bring the station quickly into the atmosphere above an unpopulated area. Russia is legendary for announcing the imminent destruction of Mir, only to save it shortly thereafter.

ARIANE 5 LAUNCHES PANAMSAT

After a day of delays, an Ariane 5 rocket successfully launched its cargo of a PanAmSat PAS-1R (a high-powered telecommunications satellite built by Boeing satellite Systems) from the launch centre in Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana. The launch occurred at 1:07am GMT, with the separation of the satellite 42 minutes later. This is the 4th commercial flight for the Ariane 5 rocket.
