Friends,

For those of you who like me - donot have time to click the link,

a small recap of what I know about Mir !!




Mir is not just a spacecraft but a space station which means

it is enormous and has major docking facilities. It was set on space

in 1986 and was operating till 2001 when it was de-orbited.

Most of those 15 years it was manned with more than 4-5

people at a time. People have stayed in the spacestation for more

than 1 year at a strech !! (Yes!). Numerous spacewalks have

been performed by the crew which includes - Afghans, Austrians,

Kazhagastans, French other than Russians.
