Abnormal Load!

Excalibur Almaz Space Stations Traveling In Isle Of Man. The Isle of Man's Manx Radio (1/6) reports, "It's been revealed the abnormal loads being transported on the Isle of Man's roads yesterday (Wednesday) were two space stations" owned by Excalibur Almaz. "The stations will be initially stored in Jurby, but there plans for research, testing and possible launch into orbit." The article notes these "are directly related to the module design used on the International Space Station, as well as the earlier Russian Salyut and Mir space stations."
