Shannon Lucid's Article

For your info, there is a 10-page article titled "Six Months on Mir" by
Shannon Lucid in the May issue of The Scientific American.  The
well-written article describes her preparations and six month mission on
Mir.  She also mentions that she kept in contact with her family via a "ham
radio packet system."

Also included are lots of interesting photos and a typical Scientific
American high-quality figure of the Mir space station set up.  Perhaps
knowledgeable folks (like Phil Chien, KC4YER) can scan the photos and
spot the Mir amateur radio transceiver and other interesting items?
