Mir space station in orbit seen from Soyuz

Peace in orbit. The Russian space station Mir ('peace'), seen floating in orbit above the Earth. As is common practice with the space station, there is already a Soyuz craft from the preceeding launch docked with Mir (closest to camera). The Soyuz from which this photograph was taken will dock at the far end of the space station. Mir was launched into orbit on 20 February 1986 by a Proton rocket. The first occupants, Leonid Kizim and Vladimir Solovyev, arrived on 13 March 1986, staying for 125 days. Since then, Mir has served as home for the current duration record holders (Vladimir Titov & Musa Manarov, 365 days 22hrs), and other visitors, including Helen Sharman (UK)
