File:Mir unpressurised elements.jpg


English: A view of the Soviet/Russian space station Mir showing some of the station's main unpressurised components. The large scaffolding-like structure visible behind Kvant-2 is the Sofora girder, with the VDU thruster block mounted to its far end. One of the station's Strela cargo cranes (the white, tubular structure stretching from Priroda to Kvant-2) is also visible. The cosmonaut manoeuvring unit, or SPK, can be seen at the lower left, attached to a mounting bracket on the end of Kvant-2, and the ASPG-M scan platform is visible at the bottom of the image, also mounted to Kvant-2. Finally, a large synthetic aperture radar dish, called TRAVERS, can be seen projecting from Priroda.
