Space Station "MIR"

Space Station "MIR"

Russia's Mir Space Station has been in orbit for over 10 years. The first element of the station was launched on February 20, 1986 at an inclination of 51.6 degrees. The current Mir Space Station is actually a complex of different modules that have been pieced together.

The Mir module, the first module of the complex placed in orbit, is the main module of the station. It provides docking ports for the other modules to attach to. There are five docking ports on the transfer compartment of the Mir module. One along the long axis of the module, and 4 along the radius in 90 degree increments. There is another docking port on the aft end of the Mir module. The various modules that are attached to the docking ports can be moved around to different configurations.

We (couple in mid 30's) had a long 15 hour layover in Moscow on our way to SE Asia over Christmas break. We wanted a guided that could pick us up at the airport, show us the sites, & bring us back to catch our connection. Who wants the stress of trying to figure out taxis or public transportation when you don't have a lot of time, you have luggage, & your in the middle of a long haul flight with little sleep? You just don't need that kind of stress on vacation! Arthur was the perfect choice! He met us at the airport. We loaded our luggage into his car & we were off to the city! Arthur has a deep knowledge of history and was able to give us great insight into Russian history. He is also a really good photographer which I loved since I too greatly enjoy photography. He suggested great photos & angles & was also there to take shots of Michael & I together around the city. We now have great trip photos to share with family & friends. We visited Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Tomb, Moscow Kremlin ground and cathedrals, Armory museum, changing of the guard, Moscow Metro stations, took panoramas of Moscow Kremlin from river and after dark photographed some night scenes of Moscow. He took us to a great Ukrainian restaurant to eat. The hearty food was sooo good on a chilly Moscow day! At the end of the day Arthur drove us back to the airport & even walked us to our gate. We really had a great day in Moscow with Arthur. Don't spend your layover in the airport. Get out & experience this amazing city with a great guide & no worries!
