What is it like being an astronaut?

Michael Foale is the most experienced British-born astronaut in the history of human space travel, having clocked over 374 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 and during one of his space walks fixed the Hubble Space Telescope. Mike was also responsible for saving the Russian Mir Space Station when it was hit by a supply craft, lost power and tumbled out of control. He has been inducted into the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame. Come and listen to him talk about these experiences and ask your questions.
