Mir became a temporary home for seven NASA astronauts. For each increment in some small way, the Russian Space Station reflected the person onboard from the U.S. Space Program.

When requested, each astronaut provided a few items for this section that would convey a personal sense of their residency. Included with the image is a description of the items that help to "customize" the environment during their stay on Mir.
