International Space Station
---------------------------

Expedition 50 continues. 

The Progress MS-04 cargo ship was launched from Baykonur on a Soyuz-U rocket on Dec 1.
However, the vehicle lost attitude control during third stage burn
and its debris fell in the Tuva Republic. Lost with the rest of the cargo was the first Orlan-MKS spacesuit
(possibly serial No. 3).

Tianlian 1-04
-------------

On Dec 1 Tianlian 1-04 was tracked on station at 76.9E, a few degrees from
Tianlian 1-01.
