MIR Space Shuttle STS-71 to STS-80

The new Orbitalstation Mir was after the different Sajlut Orbitalstations the most advanced and succesfull Orbitalstation.

Mir was the 8th Orbitalstation from Russia.

From 1987 until 2000, 30 Sojus spaceships (TM-1 to TM-30) have visited the Mir and 11 Space Shuttles STS docked at Mir station.

On 29.06.1995 the Space Shuttle STS-71 was the first one which docked at the Mir station.

On 19.02.1986 the mainpart of the new Orbitalstation Mir was launched by a Proton rocket.

The first visit to Mir station was Sojus T-15 with Leonid Kizim and Wladimir Solovyew from 15th of march to 5th of may 1986, but they stayed most of their mission in the older Orbitalstation Saljut-7

(6th may to 25th june 1986). From 26th june to 16th july they stayed once again in the new station Mir.

Unmanned Progess 25 docked on Mir 21th march 1986, Progress 26 docked on Mir 25th april 1986.

After the first unmanned flight from Sojus TM-1 (docking MIR 23.05.1986), the first manned flight to Mir was Sojus TM-2 with the russian cosmonauts Juri Romanenko and Alexander Lawelkin.

The Mir station was a totally new developed Orbitalstation with 4 compartments in the basic part with options for further expansion and upgrate.
