File:Mir from STS-74.jpg


English: This image of the Russian space station Mir was photographed by a crewmember of the STS-74 mission when the Space Shuttle Atlantis was approaching Mir for docking. STS-74 was the second Shuttle-Mir docking mission, during which the Docking Module was delivered and installed, making it possible for Space Shuttles to dock more easily with the station. Atlantis delivered water, supplies, and equipment, including two new solar arrays to upgrade Mir, and returned to Earth with experiment samples, equipment for repair and analysis, and products manufactured on the station. STS-74 was launched on 12 November 1995, and landed at the Kennedy Space Centre on 20 November 1995.
