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.

In June of 2010, my friends and I had a long layover in Moscow. We were hoping for a brief one day introduction to Moscow, yet Arthur gave us so much more. He was not only a comfortable guide, but incredibly knowledgeable. His knowledge of Russian and world history is incredible. As a history teacher, I was especially impressed with his attention to historic detail. One thing I appreciated was his efficiency considering our time constraints. We viewed the sights at our own pace, yet he seemed to know every trick when it came to getting in and out of a location and moving on to the next. Another aspect of his services that impressed me was his ability to speak excellent English. If we had a question, he had the answer, and there was never a conversation that was lost in translation. Without reservation, I highly recommend Arthur and his guide services. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or concerns you may have.
