Building the International Space Station

Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)

Abstract

The principal focus of the Russian space program is the International Space Station (ISS), which was agreed in 1993 and started construction on orbit in 1998. Here, Chapter 2 looks not only at the origins and development of the station, but also the disposal of the flagship station fron the Soviet period, Mir. The stories of Mir, Mir 2, the American Freedom Station and the International Space Station at many times intersected each other [1].
