JSR 753 is now permalinked at http://planet4589.org/space/jsr/back/news.753.txt

International Space Station
---------------------------

Expedition 56 continues with astronauts Feustel, Artem'ev, Arnold, Prokop'ev,
Aunon-Chancellor and Gerst.

Hayabusa-2
----------

JAXA felt it understood The problem with the lidar readings that interrupted TD1-R1,
so the descent to release the MINERVA II-1 rovers is going ahead on schedule.

RemoveDebris
------------

I've entered the RemDeb Net in the launch list on the assumption it was ejected a few
minutes after DebrisSat-1; this is just a guess.
The RemoveDebris project is led by Surrey Space Centre and operated by SSTL.
