it was a delay with a silver lining though----allowing her to break the u-s

LUCID:" THE OTHER THING I THINK THAT IS OF ABSOLUTE VITAL IMPORTANCE IS THAT YOU HAVE VERY STRONG FAMILY SUPPORT. MY FAMILY IS SUPPORTING ME AND HAS BEEN SUPPORTING ME ALL THE WAY AND THAT HAS BEEN VERY, VERY VITAL TO MY WELL-BEING AND HAVING A GOOD TIME HERE ON THE STATION MIR."

American astronaut john blaha will take over where lucid left off.
Atlantis seperates from mir on monday....he's set to stay for 4-months....hardly a record in comparison to lucid's visit which she hopes will one day be considered routine.
"AS FAR AS SETTING A RECORD I JUST HOPE THAT IT'S A LESSON THAT DOESN'T STAND FOR VERY LONG ...BECAUSE I HOPE IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS QUITE A FEW AMERICANS WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND A LONG TIME IN SPACE."
