Shuttle-Mir History

This view of Russia's Mir Space Station following its undocking from the Space Shuttle Atlantis was photographed by the Mir-19 crew on July 4, 1995.

History is more than what happened and when. It is many stories told as one story, within the narrative of an age.

This Shuttle-Mir History Web Site presents the history of Phase 1 in many ways - in its sights and sounds; in its historical context; and in the words of its participants - all against the backdrop of our times.
