MIR Corporation Russian Space Tour Featured in Forbes

MIR Corporation’s “Inside the Russian Space Program” tour has a nice write-up on Forbes.com. An excerpt from the story reads:

The specialized tour operated by the adventure company MIR is an outgrowth of a special relationship that company founder Douglas Grimes has with the former Soviets due to volleyball. “I’ve played volleyball since I was 6 and the Soviet Union dominated volleyball,” he says. “Eventually, I met people on the Soviet Olympic team, we did a volleyball exchange during Perestroika and then advanced to citizen exchanges. MIR means peace and world in Russian.”
