Waiting for the arrival of a new cable might take longer than usual.
Today's Boston Globe reports that Kazakhstan has banned all launches from
the Baikonur Cosmodrome, the Russian's chief launch site, in the wake of
booster rocket explosion at that site on Monday.  Russian officials are now
concerned about Wednesday's scheduled launch of a supply ship for Mir.  The
Mir crew will be forced to abandon the station July 17 if they do not
receive the supplies.  The supply ship was scheduled to carry food, water,
and a new navigation system to guide Mir's descent to Earth.
