It was in space February 20, 1986 to March 23, 2001. It was occupied in space for 4,592 days and made 86,331 orbits of the Earth. A total of 104 people, from 12 countries, spent time on Mir.
It was for a time the largest man made object in orbit — until superseded in every way by the International Space Station (ISS).

‘Big Eyes’, The 2014 Movie Is Definitely Worth Watching If You Haven’t Seen It — Interesting, True Story.
Watch the trailer on YouTube.
“Big Eyes” caught my eyes when I was looking through all the ‘new’ movies available this weekend, on Cinemax & Showtime, as part of the DISH free, preview. I subscribe to HBO, so I don’t have to worry about catching movies available on that channel.
I DVRed “Big Eyes” (I think on Friday night) amongst a total of about 14 other movies and all 12 episodes of “Billions”.
“Big Eyes” is the only movie from this batch of recordings that we have watched — and by that I include Teischan (given that it was PG-13 (and we let Teischan watch PG-13s as long as she is with us)).
Good movie. True story. Amazing story. So 1950s and 1960s. Compelling. We liked it.
