The mission control center in Korolyov, outside Moscow station directs sized 33m x 30m x 27m with a weight of 137 tons of it entered the Earth’s atmosphere. The largest man-made objects in space that eventually exploded and caught fire in the reentry process, but about 1,500 pieces with a total estimated weight of 25-30 tons penetrate the atmosphere in the form of a giant fireball and finally plunge in the South Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and korodor and Chile, in a location which is used Russia as a garbage dump space (space Junkyard).
Mir (also known as DOS 7, the Russian acronym for “Long Term Orbit Station”) is a station-10 which was launched by the Soviet Union (now Russia) after previously launched three military Almaz station and six laboratory civilian DOS. Mir core module reached orbit on February 20, 1986 and has traveled 86 330 orbits around the Earth before the mission ends. A total of 28 long-term missions involving 106 astronauts from various countries for a total period of stay not less than 4591 days (including the record for the longest, 437 days by Valeriy Polyakov physicist) as well as a series of short-term 11-day mission for a decade has been done on Mir. Recorded 79 times spacewalks (a walk in space) and thousands of scientific experiments from different disciplines have been done by the crew of the Mir during his tenure.
During taking off, some accident had happened to Mir. Minor damage occurred in 1994 when Mir collided with Soyuz TM-17 spacecraft, while more severe damage occurred in 1997 when a collision with the spacecraft Progress M-34. This last Persitiwa also cause fires in addition to other serious damage to the Kvant module (see chart).
