MIRCORP WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH PLANS, DESPITE MIR'S UNCERTAIN FUTURE

Although the beleaguered Mir space station has an uncertain future, MirCorp is still moving forward with all its plans to commercialize the space station. A Russian Progress unmanned cargo spacecraft will launch to the station on October 16 to bring fuel and other supplies - it will also boost Mir's orbit to prevent from entering the Earth's atmosphere. All this despite the rumours that the Russian government has almost approved a plan to deorbit the station.

WEATHER COULD THREATEN SHUTTLE LAUNCH

Stormy skies are gathering over the Space Shuttle launchpad in Florida's Cape Canaveral. Forecasters say that there's a 40% chance that bad weather tomorrow could delay the Space Shuttle Discovery's 11-day mission to the International Space Station. High winds and rain from Tropical Storm Keith could force a shutdown of the Johnson Space Center, but right now the storm's predicted course brings it much further south.
