English: This PDF displays the movements of the internal Conus docking cones within the Mir core module's forward docking hub over the lifetime of the station. Most Conus movements were made by cosmonauts during internal EVAs lasting approximately 20 minutes, as the Conus placement required removing one of four outer hatches exposing the pressurised hub to the vacuum of space.
Also shown are the documented module additions and movements around the forward docking hub, as well as major exterior additions such as Strela cranes and trusses such as Sofora, Rapana and Strombus. Each phase displayed in a line drawing view with notes. Solar array deployments and relocations are also shown.
