    The low solar activity ( F 10.7 = 135; AP = 8) has slowed down the natural 
    decrease of Mir's orbit to the 220 km average altitude mark. The Russian will 
    now start the orbit trims one day later, on March 23. The probality for this 
    date is 80%. 
    A first look shows that we will see a final reentry trajectory a little bit far 
    west of the originally planed. I hope to deliver an update of this first 
    information in the next 08 hours.
