STS071-723-033 (29 June 1995) --- The hard dock finalizing the June 29, 1995, link-up of the Russian Mir Space Station and the space shuttle Atlantis was documented with a 70mm handheld camera from the aft flight deck of the Space Shuttle Atlantis. The Androgynous Peripheral Docking System (APDS) and the Kristall module on Mir are at center frame. Later, five NASA astronauts and two Russian cosmonauts boarded Mir. The occasion was just two and a half weeks prior to the 20th anniversary of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) docking in Earth-orbit.
