25 years from the launch of the Spektr module On May 20, 1995 the Proton-K launch vehicle carrying the Spektr research module was launched from the Baikonur Launch Site under the assembly program for the world's first multi-module manned orbital complex Mir.
On June 1, 1995 after a 12-day free flight the module automatically approached the axial docking port of the core module of the Mir orbital complex. Then Spektr using a remotely-controlled manipulator was relocated to the lateral port of the core module and became part of the orbital complex. In this period the international crew of the 18th main expedition consisting of cosmonauts V.N.Dezhurov, G.M.Strekalov and NASA astronaut N.Tagard worked aboard at the station.
