Hi all,

there were a lot of questions about the new timeline. It depends from the 
undocking of Progress-40. But the problem is what will really going on with MIR. 
The official order now is to decrease Mir's orbit with the rocket motor of
Progress-40. But there are in Russia also heavy discussions to save the station 
and boost it a little higher for further long time operations. We must wait. 
>From the office of Prof. Syromyatnikow, the chief of the Znamya 2.5 - 
I have the information that they will start with the mirror at mid-February 1999. 
Be patient, I am on the door of the Znamya -people.
