Mir was a Soviet/Russian space station that operated from 1986 to 2001. It is the first modular space station ever built, and held the record of the longest continuous human presence in space (10 years) until it was surpassed by the ISS in 2010. Cosmonauts and astronauts stay aboard the station for 7 to 437 days, arriving from both Soyuz and the Space Shuttle. The lessons in space station assembly that was conducted until 1996 became essential for the completion of the ISS and Tiangong years after Mir was deorbited onto the Pacific Ocean
