Mir spacewalk

Sun, 2 Nov 97 22:57:47 PST

Florida Today Online is reporting that a Mir spacewalk began at 0332 UT
Monday to remove a solar panel and to hand-launch the Sputnik 1/3 scale
replica.  I'm assuming the solar panel will be jettisoned, but the article
didn't explicitly say so.  It just said the panel will be removed.  Mir
will make pre-dawn passes Monday for the southern half of the U.S., Central
America, and Hawaii.  Evening passes for N.Z., southern Australia, and
South Africa are coming up, as well.
