On the night of September 1, 2012, a rocket carrying the first section of the space station [i]Progress[/i]. This first section, called Partog or "Dawn," has many functions. The solar panels on the module can produce 3 kW of electricity, enough to power the station until the main panels can be installed. The module also contains several thrusters to keep the station on course, and in its proscribed orbit 250 miles above the Earth. As the station grows, more and more of the module's functions will be given to specialized compartments, and the module will be converted to mainly storage.

The Marscurian Siberian Space Agency has delivered a tentative time-table for the addition of additional modules.

SEPTEMBER 1, 2012: PARTOG MODULE: Storage, Navigation, Electricity Generation - Pressurized
SEPTEMBER 15, 2012: HABITATION MODULE: Sleeping, Eating, Bathrooms - Pressurized

MARCH 8, 2014: RADIO TRUSS: Connection point for radio dishes, Navigation - Non-Pressurized
APRIL 19, 2014: COMMUNICATION DISHES: Station/Earth Communication, Deep Space Transmission, Deep Space Signal Interception - Non-Pressurized
JULY 12, 2014: CENTRAL SPINE: Connection Point for Laboratories, Storage - Pressurized
SEPTEMBER 14, 2014: LABORATORY 1: Experiments - Pressurized
APRIL 8, 2015: LABORATORY 2: Experiments - Pressurized
JUNE 5, 2015: DOCK: Resupply Docking, Connection Point for Laboratories - Pressurized

President Evan McDowell of the Maritime Republic of J Andres congratulates the Marscurian Siberian Space Agency on their success and initiative to construct a space station. It is forward [i]Progress[/i] like this that will lead the world into a new era. The construction of structures in space can be both costly and time-consuming. We hope that the funding for this space station will never diminish, allowing for the station to be completed in its desired timescale. Good luck in all of your space endeavors and furthering the footprint of humanity.

On April 12, the Progress-3 mission successfully launched with its cargo into a Low Earth Orbit 250 miles above the planet.  Aboard the spacecraft was the Shtern command module for the Progress Space Station.  Also aboard the spacecraft are the first two cosmonauts who will live and work on the space station, Boris Volynov and Alexandr Wolf.  The main job of these two men will be to fully connect and integrate the Shtern component with with the Partog and Vaoynart segments already in orbit since 2012.  The initial connection will take approximately 3 months, at which point another part will be sent into orbit, followed by another segment a month later.  The two cosmonauts are scheduled to spend 6 months on the space station, being replaced in October by another set of 3 cosmonauts.

In the first daytime launch, the mission Progress-4 carried the central truss of the Progress space station, renamed Mir-2, into orbit.  The truss is designed to both link the habitation side of the space station to the laboratories, and to hold the rigging for the solar panels and communication dishes.  The piece is expected to rendezvous with the space station tomorrow, where the cosmonauts Wolf and Volynov will attach and integrate the segment.

We find Caucasia's story an impossibility.  Not only is Caucasia thousands of miles from the launch point, but the only things they can do competently is suck and die.  To suggest that a Dagestani, a people famous only for the fact that one of them was killed with his own penis, pulled off a feat is a blatant lie.  Tianxia still owes us a replacement space station part and an apology for launching a missile over sovereign Russian territory.

If a drunken Dagestani can use Caucasian resources to destroy Russian property then there is a serious problem with your security procedures. Furthermore, silencing the only person alleged to have any knowledge of the incident is grossly irresponsible. He may have had accomplices and external financial sources, or may have been part of a larger terrorist organization, but we may never know. We are tired of our neighbors to the south putting our security at risk. We will conduct a full investigation and it will require Caucasia to turn over all information it has regarding this incident to the Russian authorities. Failure to do so will be seen as an act of collusion with terrorists.

The man in question was an officer of the Dagestani Red Army. His records have been sealed following his execution, and we refuse to turn over anything to Russia.

 

Russia notes that Caucasia refuses to help us investigate a terrorist attack performed by its own military. What a shame.

Using a second set of parts, a replica of the Central Truss module has been constructed and prepared for launch.  In addition to the module, moderate amounts of food and water will be transported to Mir-2 along with a third cosmonaut, Naum Matovich.  The extra labor is needed for rapid attachment and integration of both the central truss structure and the first of the station's trusses, which is set to be launched in a month.  Launch date for this Progress-5 mission is 7pm tomorrow.
