    Pardon me if this has been posted, but I don't see it in the digest
    headlines of the past few days:
    	    Russia's Mir space station, which has been
    	    orbiting the Earth empty for nearly half a year, is
    	    to stay in space until August at least.
    	    This is the official word from the head of Russia's
    	    Space Agency, who says several flights to Mir
    	    will take place over the next few months.
    	    Yuri Koptev told a news conference in Moscow
    	    that more non-government financing had been
    	    found to keep the station operating.
