Wikipedia, viewed Apr. 2, 2007 (Mir (which can mean both world and peace in Russian) was a Soviet (and later Russian) orbital station; Mir was assembled in orbit by successively connecting several modules, each launched separately from February 19, 1986 to 1996. The station existed until March 23, 2001, at which point it was deliberately de-orbited, and broke apart during atmospheric re-entry)
