BUSINESSMAN MAY PAY FOR MIR FLIGHT

To help cover maintenance costs, Russian officials have agreed to

let a British businessman pay $100 million for a week-long trip on

the Mir spacestation. There is some confusion about the status of the

deal, though, and it could have been prematurely announced by eager

Russian dealmakers.

IKONOS GOES MISSING

Technicians lost contact with the IKONOS high-resolution imaging satellite

shortly after liftoff. The satellite, built by Lockheed Martin, was launched

from Vandenberg Air Base on an Athena II rocket, and it's unknown whether

the satellite made it to orbit intact.

CHANDRA DELAY ANNOUNCED

Because it was designed to use the same Inertial Upper Stage as the Air Force's

misplaced satellite, NASA has decided to delay the launch of the Chandra X-Ray

Observatory until a detailed investigation has been completed. Chandra was

originally planned for launch July 9th.

NEXT DELTA LAUNCH ATTEMPT SCHEDULED

In the ongoing soap opera of launch attempts to get the Orion 3 satellite into

orbit, Boeing has rescheduled the Cape Canaveral facility for May 3rd. This will

be their 4th attempt to loft the satellite - a software glitch aborted the

Delta III rocket from firing last time.
