What's it like being an astronaut?

Dr Michael Foale, CBE, PhD (Former NASA astronaut)
Mike is the most experienced British-born astronaut in the history of human space travel having clocked over 373 days in space, flown on six Space Shuttle missions and a Soyuz, and commanded the International Space Station. He was the first Briton to perform a space walk, during which he saved the Hubble Space Telescope. Mike was also responsible for saving the Russian Mir Space Station when it was tumbling out of control and he was recently inducted into the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame. Come and listen to him talk about these experiences and share his stories with you at this special event.
