Saving the Russian space station Mir

Michael Foale, CBE, PhD (Former NASA astronaut)

In 1997 Mike was on board the Russian Mir space station with two other cosmonauts when it was hit by a supply craft - the worst collision in the history of spaceflight. It sent the space station tumbling out of control and left the team without power and contact with Earth. Come and hear the story of how events unfolded at this unique event.

Mike has flown on 6 Space Shuttle missions, a Soyuz and commanded the International Space Stations. As well as saving the Mir space station, he was the first Briton to perform a space walk, during which he saved the Hubble Space Telescope.
