poor performance

trip to the Moon. Ultimately, however, the Soviet Politburo (Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union) decided the risk of crew death was unacceptable given the combined poor performance to that point of Zond Proton and so scrubbed the launch of a manned Soviet lunar mission. Their decision proved to be a wise one, since this unnumbered Zond mission was destroyed in another unmanned test when it was finally launched several weeks later. thumb left 235px Baikonur, in Kazakhstan (2004) (File:Baikonuriss.jpg) Three closed cities under Russian administration exist in Kazakhstan. They are Baikonur (formerly Leninsk), a city constructed to service the Baikonur Cosmodrome, the Kurchatov township (Kurchatov, Kazakhstan) at the Semipalatinsk Test Site and Priozersk (Priozersk, Kazakhstan) which is the administrative center of the Sary Shagan anti-ballistic missile testing site. is a space mission of the European Space Agency, with NASA participation, to study the Earth's magnetosphere over the course of an entire solar cycle. The mission is composed of four identical spacecraft flying in a tetrahedral (Tetrahedron) formation. A replacement for the original Cluster (Cluster (spacecraft)) spacecraft which were lost in a launch failure in 1996, the four Cluster II spacecraft were successfully launched in pairs in July and August 2000 onboard two Soyuz-Fregat rockets from Baikonur. In February 2011, Cluster II celebrated 10 years of successful scientific operations in space. The mission has been extended until December 2012. China National Space Administration ESA Double Star mission operated alongside Cluster II from 2003 to 2007. * A street in Kiev * One of the two major streets in Baikonur (the other is in honor of his main rival Sergei Korolev) * The crater Yangel (Yangel' (crater)) on the Moon.

He has also won the Pentathalon in the Olympics, earned a Mexican pilot's license, gone to space as a cosmonaut from Baikonur, and dated Betty White in Sao Paolo.

These migrants founded mining towns which quickly grew to become major industrial centers such as Karaganda (1934), Zhezkazgan (1938), Temirtau (1945) and Ekibastuz (1948). In 1955 town of Baikonur was built to support the Baikonur Cosmodrome to this day its administered by Russia. Many more Russians arrived in the years 1953-1965,during the so-called Virgin Lands Campaign of Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev. Still more settlers came in the late 1960s and 70s, when the government paid bonuses to workers participating in a program to relocate Soviet industry close to the extensive coal, gas, and oil deposits of Central Asia. By 1979 ethnic Russians in Kazakhstan numbered about 5,500,000, almost 40 % of the total population. In December 1986 Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev appointed Gennady Kolbin, with no ties to the republic as the first secretary of the Central Committee of Communist Party of Kazakh SSR, breaking with a tradition of ethnic Kazakh dominance in the local administration. Following several incidents of ethnic unrest in 1989, Kolbin was replaced by Nursultan Nazarbayev who following the dissolution of the Soviet Union became the president of independent Kazakhstan.

The Phillies' Ricky Ledee hits a home run for the game's only run. It is only the ninth time in Phillies history a pitcher throws a no-hitter, and the first time for them since Tommy Greene did it in 1991. Currently for Kazakhstan, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 2 cities and 14 regions (provinces of Kazakhstan). The cities Almaty and Astana are the former and current capitals of the country respectively and have special status equal to the regions. Baikonur, a city which also has special status as it is currently leased by Russia, had its code deleted in Newsletter I-4 (#I-4). Mission profile ''Mars Express'' launched from Baikonur on 2 June 2003, at 17:45 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) (18:45 BST (British Summer Time)). The ''Beagle 2'' was a Mars lander initially mounted on the top deck of the ''Mars Express Orbiter''. It was released from the ''Orbiter'' on a ballistic trajectory towards Mars on the 19th of December 2003 at 8:31 UT. ''Beagle 2'' coasted for six days after release and was scheduled to enter the Martian atmosphere, at over 20,000 km h, on the morning of the 25th of December. The lander was protected from the heat of entry by a heatshield coated with NORCOAT, an ablating material made by EADS. Compression of the martian atmosphere and radiation from the hot gas are estimated to have led to a peak heating rate of around 100 W (Watt) cm², comparable to the heat flux experienced by Mars Pathfinder. *In Zimbabwe, opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai is first arrested, then released. This coincides with the start of a week of protests against the government, who have put Tsvangirai on trial for treason. He is due to appear in court later today. *Europe launches its first voyage to another planet, Mars.
