What's it like being an astronaut?

Dr Michael Foale, CBE, PhD (NASA astronaut)
Mike's experiences are unparalleled in British space history. Mike will guide you through the life of an astronaut with exclusive insights, sharing breath-taking photos and never-seen-before footage from his missions.

Hear about Mike's historic spacewalks, his mission to revive the Hubble Space Telescope, and his critical role in saving the Russian Mir Space Station as it tumbled out of control around the Earth following the only collision in outer space. These stories of courage and innovation highlight his extraordinary achievements.
