What's it like being an astronaut?

Lincolnshire-born 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. His experience includes being Deputy Director of Johnson Space Centre and Deputy Administrator for NASA. Mike was the first Briton to perform a space walk, during which he brought the Hubble space telescope back to life and was also responsible for saving the Russian Mir Space Station when it was tumbling 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 share his stories with you at this special event.
