STS-71 and Mir Space Station undockingFrom early 1994 into 1998, 7 American astronauts spent nearly 1000 days living in orbit with Russian cosmonauts on board the space station Mir. American space shuttles rendezvoused ten times with Russia's space station Mir. Called "Phase 1," the Shuttle-Mir Program prepared the way for the International Space Station and began an era of cooperation and exploration, rarely seen in human history.
