((For a time this evening...both of MIR's oxygen systems...the primary system..and the backup system...failed.
Since a June collision with an unmanned supply ship...the crew had been using so-called oxygen canisters...which burn like candles and supply oxygen. But that system broke down tonight...so the crew resorted to it's main system...which had been turned off.
But that system also failed, apparently from overheating.
U.S. space agency officials said tonight that even with both systems off...quote..."this is a not a critical issue" for the crew...since there are several days supply of ambient oxygen in the space station.
In any event...if the oxygen situation were to become serious...the crew could always evacuate the MIR in their escape capsule.
To further confuse things...a new wire report from Moscow tonight...quoting a Russian Mission Control spokesperson...said that the crew had managed to reconnect the primary oxygen system...and that ....quote.."there is no oxygen problem on MIR today"...end quote.
Space officials said the MIR crew is now asleep and there will be no further word on the status of the space station's oxygen system until morning. Richard Threlkeld CBS News, Moscow.))
