CHINESE ASTRONAUTS TRAINING IN RUSSIA

Participants on "Destination Mir" may bump into future Chinese astronauts when they do their training at Moscow's space training facilities. According to Chinese state media, a group of "taikonauts" were recently sent to Moscow for training. Speculation has run rampant about a Chinese manned flight after an unmanned capsule orbited the Earth almost a year ago. A Chinese rocket designer noted that the Russians and United States collectively did 28 unmanned tests before sending humans into space - they're in no rush.

The launch of a Titan 2 booster from Vandenberg Air Force Base carrying an NOAA-L weather satellite was scrubbed this morning because of an electronics problems. Originally scheduled to launch at 3:22am GMT, several transistors in the booster's electronics were overloaded with current during the pre-launch preparations - what caused this is unknown. The launch has been tentatively rescheduled for the same time on Thursday.
