USSR rejected the idea of manned flight to the moon but instead concentrated its space focused efforts on building a long term space home. The MIR station stayed over fifteen years on the Earth orbit instead of three as initially was planned. Over ninety people visited this place. It was called “great achievement of Russians”. Let’s see some more details on the famous space station. At one point it time it was even almost turned into a Sex Tourism center because male genitals work best in zero gravity. But let’s start from beginning..

It was launched February 20, 1986 for the first time. It was its first base module. The station was planned in such way that it could be upgraded with new modules with time being.

So here is a time chart of how it was developing. The first 1986 module was called “base block”. Then in 1987 a new module “Quant” was added. Quant became a “spacegate” for the MIR station. Then in 1989 a QUANT-2 was added. Then in 1990 a “Crystal” module appeared. In 1995 “Spectre” module was added and in 1996 “Priroda (Nature)” module was sent to MIR. This way it finally got its final well known space look with tens of solar panels and sections.
