A Replica of the Soviet Mir Station Found In Japan

A Replica of the Soviet Mir Station Found In Japan

A Facebook user named Ragim Jafarov has been to Japan and visited a small city Tomakomai where he saw a cool replica of the “Mir” space station. But why do they need such a twin?

In fact this station is fully identical and functional, it can perform all operations that were done by cosmonauts in orbit! Technically it is not even a replica, but a real station, guys. Rather cool.

  1. Is this station an original one, made in the CCCP? Or is it a exactly copy made in Japan? I’ve loste this detail.

    • It took a bit of searching to find out, but this is actually an un-flown spare, built in the USSR (as was).
