    This is an actual 2SB2-2K Command Control Console and Monitor from the MIR's twin sister ship in Russia. During the MIR mission, the ship was used for cosmonaut / astronaut training and technical analysis for the Russian Space Agency.

It is a Real Piece of
Russian Space History.

It was used to control different systems of the station like electric, temperature, fuel systems and others. This is the only control board of it's kind in the world. The only other was the one on the MIR which burnt up upon entering the Earth's atmosphere on March 21, 2001.

The monitor would
show the status of the different systems
onboard the station.

It is one of the main control panels on the MIR station.
The command generation keys have mutual mechanical inhibits. These keys are used to issue activation and deactivation commands. The corresponding panel light verifies successful execution of the command.

Here is the exact same Control Board and Monitor mounted on
the MIR Space Station
in orbit above the Earth.

The first element of the
MIR was launched
on February 20, 1986.

MIR endured 15 years in orbit, 3 times its planned lifetime.
Over its lifetime, the space station hosted 125 cosmonauts and astronauts from 12 different nations. It supported 17 space expeditions, including 28 long-term crews. After more than 86,000 total orbits, Mir re-entered Earth’s atmosphere on Friday, March 23, 2001, at 9 a.m. Moscow time. The 134-ton space structure broke up over the southern Pacific Ocean.
 

In September, 2003 we were fortunate enough to actually acquire this authentic Space Station Control Board & Monitor from the twin version of the MIR. 

The rest of the station was ultimately
disassembled in Russia and most of the pieces
were scraped after the MIR project ended in 2001.

We also have a  MIR Space Station Window Assembly
in our collection.

Only a few pieces from the space station remain today.
