Mir's Reentry To Earth

Fri Mar 23, 2001 1:51 pm

Hi,

I've read in an article that at least 5 flights will be delayed today (23rd March 2001). This is to make way for Mir's expected crash into the Pacific Ocean. Any idea what flights/ airlines/ equipment is to be delayed?

Warm Regards

Ps. As of this moment when this was posted, Mir was somewhere near Santiago.

It seems like a group of tuna fishing boats are at grounde zero for the Mir splashdown and refuse to move.

I can only hope that these boats have video cameras aboard. I wonder if Starkist will be offering free caned tuna if a boat takes a direct hit.

These fisherman are brainless "relics hunter". Some scientists say that MIR has some mutated organisms and space bacterias on it. So once it goes all around , brace yourselves...

I've got some old car parts I'm going to try and sell on Ebay and tell people they are parts that came from Mir.

Anyone want a Mir transmition or wheel? I got it.

MIR has some mutated organisms and space bacterias on it - an organism must be VERY mutated to survive such a landing! Big grin
