Product description

Review

From the reviews:

"This book by David Harland is written to his usual high standard. It tells the history of Mir from its early planning stage to its spectacular destruction in 2001. This brings together the complete history of a remarkable spacecraft which made living in space possible. If you want to get a clear picture of how the Mir station started … developed and grew and was used, this is the book." (Rex Hall, Spaceflight, Vol. 48, March, 2006)

"The history of the Mir Space Station, initiated with a launch in 1986 and continuously inhabited for a decade, is important for its technological achievements … . Harland, a space historian, presents a very detailed survey of the launches, cosmonauts, engineering details, problems, and solutions. … The book is well illustrated with photographs of people and spacecraft … . a significant addition to the literature of space science and technology. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals." (A. M. Strauss, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (11), July, 2005)
