Mir space station, finally came down today.. Yes, I am a bit sad.. It could’ve been converted to a space-age hotel, only if all countries decided so.. But it came down. No secrets, I loved Russia, more than America, though I didnt have even a fair idea, during that time what communism was and what capitalism was. But I loved the way science was progressing.. Once a while I would spot a sattelite in the night sky and will feel really grateful for the science, which produced that. A sad end.. to a giant mission. Erstwhile communist USSR is now in tatters.. America now plays the Big Brother. No.. I am not against America or any ideology.. just fascination with science..
