Caption: Mir space station damage. Damaged solar panels (at upper centre) attached to the Spektr module of the Russian Space Station Mir. Mir was struck by a Progress unmanned supply vessel on 25 June 1997. The collision punctured Spektr near the base of the damaged solar panel and caused it to depressurize. The crew successfully isolated the damaged module. Spektr is one of several science modules which have been added to Mir since the core of the space station was launched in 1986. This image was taken from the space shuttle during mission STS-086 (25 September to 6 October 1997), when the American astronaut David Wolf replaced British-born Michael Foales as a Mir crew member.
