FREE image of Mir space station as seen from STS-63 Discovery
STS063-708-095 (6 Feb 1995) --- Cumulus and other clouds over the ocean form the backdrop for this scene of Russia's Mir space station during rendezvous operations by the Space Shuttle Discovery and Mir. This photograph was taken as the Discovery was firing its Reaction Control Subsystem (RCS) thrusters to separate from Mir's proximity. Onboard the Discovery were astronauts James D. Wetherbee, mission commander; Eileen M. Collins, pilot; Bernard A. Harris Jr., payload commander; mission specialists Janice Voss and C. Michael Foale; along with Russian cosmonaut Vladimir G. Titov. EDITOR'S NOTE: This 70mm handheld Hasselblad frame has been cropped to enlarge Mir.
