Re: Whats Correct.???



The main objective on this most recent EVA was to find and eliminate a
pressure leak somewhere on MIR. Apparently the leak is small but serious -
they are reporting that it will render MIR uninhabitable within a few months
if it can not be found. They did not find it on this last EVA but they did
fix the antenna while they were out there. They are considering another walk
very soon to try again on the pressure leak.
I am not in any official capacity with MIR - just saw it on CNN's website a
few days back.
