Mir Space Station - Docking Module

The Docking Module was delivered and installed by shuttle mission STS-74, making it possible for the space shuttle to dock easily with Mir. Earlier, during STS-71, the shuttle had docked with Mir's Kristall module, after Russian cosmonauts had performed a spacewalk to move the Kristall to a longitudinal (end) position, to allow room for the shuttle docking. Kristall was later moved back to its original location.
