Harbaugh, Mission SpecialistBonnie J. Dunbar, Mission Specialist  In addition to holding the distinction of being the 100th U.S. manned space flight, STS-71 marked several other important milestones. The mission featured the first on-orbit changeout of a Space Shuttle crew, and for the first time a U.S. spacecraft returned to Earth with more occupants than when it departed. The docking of Atlantis to Mir also created the largest man-made object in space, weighing about 225 tons. Atlantis made its historic docking with Mir at 9:00 a.m. EDT on June 29, 1995 about 216 nautical miles above the Lake Baykal region of the Russian Federation.
