Re: MIR gets 'new lease on life'



Hi John:

Thanks for the interesting news.  I read the article and they mentioned it
costs about $200 million a year to keep Mir in orbit.  The economics of
manned space are very interesting as quick back of the envelope calculations
comes out to a little over $500 per orbit or about 2 cents per mile.
Meanwhile on the ground we get 32 1/2 cents for our vehicle mileage at
work...hi.

Noel,

RKT.

It is being reported that MIR will fly for several more years

Sounds good to me !
