Anyone curious about how the Internation Space Station (ISS) will
compare in size to Mir should take a look at the graphic at this page:

I knew the ISS would be large, but I didn't realize just how large.
If ISS gets built, it will be *HUGE* compared to Mir!  As a mental
exercise, perhaps somebody more proficient at math than I could
estimate a standard magnitude of ISS after taking a look at the
graphic.
