News story originally written on February 4, 2000
The United States wants Russia to put the service module in orbit! The module is part of the International Space Station. It was supposed to be in space over 2 years ago.
Russia just sent supplies to the Mir Space Station. They say the module will be launched in August. Just in case, the United States is building their own service module.
If the Russians don't launch their module in August, the U.S. will launch their own in December.
