Mir \Mir\ (m[=e]r), n. [Russ. mir'.]
A Russian village community.
--D. M. Wallace.
Mir \Mir\, n. [Per. m[=i]r.] Same as Emir.
Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
late 20c. space station, from Russian, literally "peace, world," also "village, community," from Old Church Slavonic miru "peace," from Proto-Slavic *miru "commune, joy, peace" ("possibly borrowed from Iranian" [Watkins]), from PIE root *mei- "to bind" (see mitre). Old Church Slavonic miru was "used in Christian terminology as a collective 'community of peace' " [Buck], translating Greek kosmos. Hence, "the known world, mankind."
n. A Russian village community.
Mir was a space station owned by the Soviet Union and later by Russia.
Mir or MIR may also refer to:
Mir (مير) (is a title which is derived from the Arabic title Emir). It is an aristocratic title generally used to refer to a person who is a descendant of a commander in medieval Muslim tradition.
It was adopted in many languages under Islamic influence, such as Balochi, Ottoman Turkish, Persian, Turkish, Sindhi, Azerbaijani, Kurdish, Kashmiri and Pashto meaning leader of a group or tribe. According to the book Persian Inscriptions on Indian Monuments, Mir is most probably an Arabized form of Pir. Pir in Old Persian and Sanskrit means the old, the wise man, the chief and the great leader. It was Arabized as Mir then, with Al(A) ( Arabic definite article), it was pronounced as Amir.
Mir is a Canadian alternative rock music group formed in 1998 in Halifax. Their projects have been released in Canada and Europe, and their 2006 itinerary included 4 tours in Germany after being signed to Silversonic Records in Germany. In 2004 MIR was signed to East West Warner Records for 2 years and toured extensively in Germany playing large festivals including Rock em Ring and Rockn em Park in 2005.

Mir is a Soviet wide-angle prime lens series with focal lengths varying from 12 to 65 mm with 5-7 elements.
The first variant was the Mir-1 and won the Grand Prix at Expo '58 in Brussels. Its construction was derived from the Flektogon lens by Carl Zeiss. The first element in this lens is in fact a disperser meniscus to reduce vignette effects when photographing with an open diaphragm.
The MIR series of early Soviet personal computers was developed from 1965 (MIR), 1968 (MIR-1) to 1969 (MIR-2) in a group headed by Victor Glushkov. MIR stands for «Машина для Инженерных Расчётов» (Machine for Engineering Calculations) and means both "world" and "peace" in Russian. It was designed as a relatively small-scale computer for use in engineering and scientific applications. Among other innovations, it contained a hardware implementation of a high-level programming language capable of symbolic manipulations with fractions, polynomials, derivatives and integrals. Another innovative feature for that time was the user interface combining a keyboard with a monitor and light pen used for correcting texts and drawing on screen. It could be considered one of the first personal computers.
Mir is Ott's third album. It was released on 15 March 2011 on his Bandcamp.
Mir is a computer display server for the Linux operating system currently in development by Canonical Ltd. It is planned to replace the currently used X Window System for Ubuntu.
Mir was announced by Canonical on 4 March 2013. Mir has been developed to enable the development of Unity 8, the next generation of the Unity user interface.
Bang Cheol-yong ( Korean: 방철용; born March 10, 1991), better known by his stage name Mir ( Korean: 미르), is a South Korean rapper, dancer, actor, model, MC and youngest member of the boy group MBLAQ, currently signed to J. Tune Entertainment.
In 2012, Bang partnered with fellow MBLAQ member G.O, with whom he had collaborated previously for drama soundtracks. In May of that year they released a single, "Wild," for MBLAQ's Asia tour in June, without a name and their debut was eventually postponed.
Bang appeared in South Korean variety shows, with the other MBLAQ members and on his own, and performed various songs by other artists. He wrote the lyrics to two of MBLAQ's songs, "You're My +" and "Can't Come Back."
In 2013, Bang joined Korean military variety show Real Men briefly and attracted much attention from the public. In July of the same year, Bang and his fellow MBLAQ members made a comeback after over a year's absence with the mini album "Sexy Beat". It was also revealed that Bang participated in the production of the mini album. He wrote the lyrics of "R U Ok?" and "Girl". On December 24, Bang released his first digital single, "Come On", which was revealed earlier in MBLAQ's Global Sensation Tour of 2013, the production of which he had taken part in.
