Mir Formality
Denver Area Council Pow-wow Book

After intensive investigations on both Soviet and US parts, both space agencies have determined the cause for the accident which has placed the station and its resident personnel in jeopardy. In terse statements at a recent press conference, Soviet and US space agencies spokespersons said Thursday, "We have concluded joint investigations concerning this potentially tragic accident and each nation's team, separately, has arrived at identical conclusions for this incident. One thing and one thing only caused the accident only... OBJECTS IN MIR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR."
