  • Two rockets are scheduled for launch Monday, the first in over a month worldwide. A Soyuz rocket is scheduled to launch Monday afternoon from Baikonur, carrying the Progress M1-7 (also known as Progress 6) cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station. Liftoff is scheduled for 1:24 pm EST (1824 GMT). An Ariane 44LP will launch Monday evening carrying the DIRECTV-4S direct broadcasting satellite. Liftoff from Kourou, French Guiana is scheduled for 7:35 pm EST (0035 GMT Tuesday).
  • If the cost of the International Space Station cannot be brought under control the ISS should be converted into an unmanned facility, an editorial published in the New York Times on Sunday suggested. The unbylined editorial said that if prospects for turning the station around "look really bleak" in two years, NASA should consider turning the station into an orbiting experiment platform visited only occasionally by crews.
