Mir article




For those who follow the Russian space program:

There is a fascinating article in the March (came out a month ago) issue
of Air & Space by Norm Thagard describing his journey to Mir aboard a
Soyuz.  Most interesting was the tradition of stopping on the way to the
pad in the same place Gagarin relieved himself prior to his historic
flight.  All male crew members make the same offering on the same spot.
