((A tense 24 hours for Russia's space command. Monday, at 3pm, mission control loses radio contact with the space station Mir. The 140 ton vessel has no humans on board, and that means with no contact, it could fall out of the sky anywhere -- at any time. Russian engineers believe the glitch occurred when a computer in the motion control system allowed the space station to veer off course, depleting on board batteries. While the United States communicates by satellite with its spacecraft - Russia uses a series of ground stations in Asia. That means, there is only one opportunity every 24 hours to verify contact. If Mir misses that window, it can take another full day to re-establish communication. Still, Mir has had other tense moments since launching in 1985. In 1997, a cargo craft crashed into it - finally prompting the Russian government to bring the aging space station down. That controlled descent is scheduled for February. And after this latest mishap, many people will no doubt be relieved when Mir finally falls from the sky - safely -- into the Pacific Ocean. Gretchen Carlson, CBS News, New York.))
