    There are 4 (four) ports available at the Russian Segment:
    -Z Zvezda - avaliable for Soyuz or Progress
    -X Zarya - available for Soyuz or Progress
    -Z Zarya - prepared for DC-1
    +Z Zarya - not fully equipped yet, should be used for SPP (Russian Science
    and Power Platform) in the future.
    For the current configuration schematics you may take a look on my
    satellite home page (see bellow, unfortunately in Czech only at the moment,
    bud I am working on an English version). Press ENTER, then "nejnovější
    aktualizované údaje" (=most recent entries). then select "1998-067A", them
    press the second from the right button on bottom of screen with text "Popis
    objektu" (=Object description), then roll slightly downward, select link in
    line saying "Schéma aktuálního řazení modulů stanice viz." (=Schematics of
    current linkup of station modules). Lines ending in the void are unused
    docking ports or berthing mechanisms (as CMB etc.).
