Cosmonauts Anatoly Solovyov and Nikolai Budarin are about to re-dock their Soyuz TM-21 to the Mir space station, after they had temporarily undocked and backed away to photograph the departure of Space Shuttle Atlantis during mission STS-71. While the Soyuz was flying free, a Mir computer malfunctioned and the station was becoming unstable and started to drift. Following a hasty re-docking, Solovyov and Budarin replaced computer hardware to regain attitude control of Mir. This photo was taken from Atlantis about half an hour after it had undocked.

MIR was an amazing project, and this is a beautiful picture.

If it's not one thing, it's another.
