PROGRESS SUPPLY SHIP DOCKS WITH MIR

Russia was finally able to successfully launch the Progress supply

ship to restock Mir for its final days. The launch was in jeopardy

because of a launch ban by the Kazakhstan government at the Baikonur

cosmodrome after a rocket mishap with a Russian satellite. Progress

docked with Mir early Sunday.

CHANDRA LAUNCH ONLY DAYS AWAY

The Chandra X-Ray observatory is only days away from joining the

Hubble Space telescope - outside the obscuring atmosphere of the

Earth. Chandra will launch on the Space Shuttle Columbia, the first

US space mission ever commanded by a woman, Lt. Col. Eileen Collins.

orbit early Saturday.
