MIR Space Station Window Assembly

    This is an actual window from the MIR's twin sister ship in Russia. During the MIR mission, the ship was used for cosmonaut/astronaut training and technical analysis for the Russian Space Agency.

It is an important, rare piece
of Russian Space History.

This is the only window of it's kind in the world.
The only other was the one on the MIR which burnt up upon entering the Earth's atmosphere on March 21, 2001.

    Here is cosmonaut
Yuri Ivanovich Onufrienko
looking through the exact same window in
orbit above the Earth.

The first element of the
MIR was launched on February 20, 1986.

    The diameter of the window is 14". The diameter of the glass is 8.25" and the thickness of the glass is 2.5". It is made from a special metal alloy developed just for the MIR Space Station. The entire window assembly weighs approx. 31 lbs.

Here is an exterior view of the window mounted on the side of the
MIR Space Station.

In July, 2003 we were fortunate enough to actually acquire this authentic Space Station Window from the twin version of the MIR.

The rest of the MIR's sister ship was ultimately
disassembled in Russia and most of the pieces
were scraped after the MIR project ended in 2001.

We also have a MIR Space Station Sensor Board Control Console in our collection.  Click Here for Pictures & Info.

Only a few pieces from the space station remain today.
