Caption

First Shuttle/Mir docking. Artist's impression of the Russian Mir Space Station as seen from the approaching Space Shuttle Atlantis during Mission STS-71. The docking port (brown) is at the centre of the frame, and is along the main axis of the station. Three modules of Mir are seen here; Kvant 2 (top), Priorda (right) and Spektr (bottom). Note that Mir's solar panels are 'feathered' edge- on. This is to prevent damage from the Shuttle's manoeuvring jets during docking. STS-71 is due to fly in June 1995.
