Note: The cruise maps from NOAA often cover longer periods than the active period of rocket launching - e.g. the Jan 1982 expedition is part of a cruise from Nov 1981 to Apr 1982 which goes back and forward across the ocean, but during the 29 day period of MMR-06 launches the ship was roughly stationary at the MINIA location.


Note: The WDC-A/RS database gives positions for Musson's Expedition 5 at 53N 35E, in the middle of the Russian countryside - unlikely for a ship. I assume this is a mistake for its usual position at 53N 35W.


Location of Musson on both 1989 May 31 (end of cruise SU012426) and 1989 Jul 1 (beginning of SU012114) was at the MINIA location, so for Expedition 13 during the intervening month I assume it remained there.
