Cosmonaut Nikolai Budarin, Mir flight engineer, is at the center of this photo marking the final occasion of an American visit to Russia's Mir space station. Budarin is in the base block or core module of the complex--site of many interchanges between cosmonauts and astronauts over the last several years.
