Velocity required for Earth orbit is about 17,500 MPH. Escape velocity is
around 25k MPH. So yes, it takes a lot of horsepower... ie, *lots* of gas
(ok, LOX + Hydrogen) and *big* engines (in good condition :) to burn it.
Mir has (or had) neither.
Speaking of Earth orbit, anyone know if a PIC's been in space yet?
