Hi all,
With all of the recent exchanges about satellite birthdays, history  etc.  
It prompted me to take a look back
over some my notes and activities.
I came across the final days of the MIR spacecraft and realised that this  
month ( MARCH )  marks 10 years
since the craft was de-orbited and crashed in the south Pacific.
On the 23rd March 2001 at approx. 0600 hrs UTC the spacecraft was reported  
to have made the impact
so this month marks the date 10 years on from the end of  another past era 
in space.
