The Mir image was taken on 5th July 1995 by the Mir 19 crew (who had launched aboard Atlantis) of Commander Anatoly Solovyev and Flight Engineer Nikolai Budarin moments before Atlantis undocked. The Russians undocked their Soyuz TM-21 spacecaft just to obtain these images, and redocked later. At that time the Mir station + Atlantis constituted the most massive complex ever constructed in space. Mir was not quite complete at the time, the Priroda module and Shuttle docking comp... [More]

Absolutely beautiful. One of those frame it and hang it on the wall photos. Something the next generation will never know...
