    MISSION OVERVIEW
    • Type: Human Exploration
    • Soyuz TM-30 was the 39th mission and the 28th long-duration expedition to Mir space station. It was the final human spaceflight to Mir. The mission began on April 4, 2000, 05:01:29 UTC, launching Commander Sergei Zalyotin and Flight Engineer Aleksandr Kaleri into orbit. They docked with Mir two days later. During their stay there, cosmonauts performed an EVA and various maintenance and repair tasks. Station crew was visited by several Progress resupply spacecrafts. The mission was privately funded by MirCorp company, which planned to refurbish and privatize the aging Mir space station, however insufficient funding and investment made these plans impossible to come true. The mission concluded with a safe landing back on Earth on June 16, 2000, 00:44 UTC.
