MIR Space Station

Soviet/Russian space station Mir, after completion in The date shown for each module is its year of launch. Docked to the station are a Soyuz TM manned spacecraft and an unmanned Progress resupply ferry.

It would be just awesome to visit The Space Station In Orbit Above Earth - I fear it might be too late for me now though.
