Space Station "MIR"

Space Station "MIR"

Russia's Mir Space Station has been in orbit for over 10 years. The first element of the station was launched on February 20, 1986 at an inclination of 51.6 degrees. The current Mir Space Station is actually a complex of different modules that have been pieced together.

The Mir module, the first module of the complex placed in orbit, is the main module of the station. It provides docking ports for the other modules to attach to. There are five docking ports on the transfer compartment of the Mir module. One along the long axis of the module, and 4 along the radius in 90 degree increments. There is another docking port on the aft end of the Mir module. The various modules that are attached to the docking ports can be moved around to different configurations.

Arthur is absolutely wonderful. I traveled to Russia alone but didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to see and learn as much about Russia, as possible. We saw the tourist spots as well as the authentic Russian restaurants and shops. Arthur was informative with history and background about the sites, Russia's buildings and Russia in general. I felt completely safe at all times and have recommended Arthur to many families adopting from my adoption agency. Kindly, Tammy Stevens
