Mir-21 view of Atlantis. Backdropped against a "floor" of clouds, this view of the Space Shuttle Atlantis was taken by the two Mir-21 cosmonaut crew members onboard Russia's Mir Space Station, during rendezvous and docking operations on March 23,1996. The Orbiter Docking System (ODS), the connective tunnel and the Spacehab module can be seen in Atlantis' cargo bay. With the subsequent delivery of astronaut Shannon W. Lucid to the Mir, the Mir-21 crew grew to three, as the mission specialist quickly became a cosmonaut guest researcher. She spent approxomately 140 days on Mir before returning to Earth. Enhancement of 3c6674.
