I find it apalling that Mir is to be destroyed.  If it is to be because of a 
lack of money, then why not sell (money potential) it to the US or to a 
satellite company (like Loral, etc.).  At the very least you could use it as 
a communications relay.

When it hits the ground (or water), can people keep what they find?
