    	Right now, there is nobody in space! The entire population of
    humanity is confined to Earth. When will the _permanent_ human occupation of
    space begin, I wonder?
    
    	I had thought that the long unbroken span of MIR crews in the 1990's
    marked the beginning, but it was not --- it got interrupted last year. When
    the first crew goes up to take residence in the space station, will _that_
    finally mark the beginning?
    
    	(When is that launch supposed to happen? Very shortly, right?)
