    Hello friends
    There may be a biological reason for not mating the two stations: there have been
    reports in the media as of late regarding the widespread presence of fungi
    throughout Mir, and concerns regarding the potential virulence of the organisms.
    I should throw a caveat in here, as the American media is always looking for a
    new angle to criticize Mir and the Russian space effort....so the fungal
    contamination story may be overhyped. The US media has remained deliberately
    ignorant of the wonderful accomplishments of the crews and controllers with this
    very special special machine, talking and writing about it as if it were a '71
    Ford Pinto in space ;-)
    I, for one, am sad to see it return to Earth.
    Regards
