SPEKTR MODULE FEATURES/WEIGHT

     SPEKTR SCIENCE MODULE is the newest module built for the Mir space
station complex.  It is designed to study the Earth's natural resources as
well as to investigate the upper layers of the atmosphere and the immediate
surroundings of the Mir station.  It will be used for biomedical
experimentation throughout the Mir/Shuttle program and beyond.  Spektr also
will provide additional electrical power to the station with four solar
panels.  In addition, the new module will deliver fuels and consummables to
the Mir station.

Spektr Total Weight                   19.5 metric tons (2,200 pounds per ton)

Additional equipment for station       3.24 metric tons

Structures for payload deployment      3.85 metric tons

Scientific equipment                   2.15 metric tons

U.S. scientific equipment               .70 metric tons

Cargo delivered                        1.26 metric tons
includes:
linens and personal hygiene           38.57 kilograms
documentation                          8.02 kilograms
Atmospheric monitoring equipment      12.72 kilograms
