SEA LAUNCH APPROACHING

After an initial test launch earlier this year, engineers at Boeing

are eagerly looking forward to the first commercial launch from the

Sea Launch facility - a platform floating in the Pacific Ocean near

the equator. The platform will launch a Ukrainian Zenit-3SL carrying

a Hughes communications satellite on September 28th.

KAZAKHSTAN LAUNCH BAN LIFTED

Kazakhstan officials have finally approved the Baikonur cosmodrome

to continue launching Russian rockets again. This decision came when

Moscow paid compensation after one of its boosters crashed,

scattering debris over the country.

MIR CREW CONCERNED ABOUT SAFETY OF THE STATION

Now safely on the ground, the most recent, and last, crew of the Mir

spacestation are concerned that without a crew on board, the station

could spin dangerously out of control. They fear it could lose a

significant amount of cabin pressure and make work for the cleanup

team - who'll pilot the station into the atmosphere - very difficult

in the uninhabitable station.

DELTA 2 UPGRADE PLANNED

Engineers at Boeing are working to upgrade a Delta 2 rocket to be

capable of carrying a special payload - the Space Infrared telescope

Facility (SIRTF). This will be the fifth and final launch in NASA's

Great Observatories program. The rocket will have 10 percent more

launch capacity than a standard Delta 2 when it launches in late 2001.
