9780747263319: Waystation to the Stars: The Story of Mir, Michael and Me

WAYSTATION TO THE STARS is the exclusive story of British astronaut Michael Foale, the hero of the Mir space station crisis of 1997. Told by Michael's father Colin Foale, this is a gripping account of a real-life space adventure, as the ageing Russian station underwent a series of crises from a horrific collision to a potentially fatal computer crash. Michael - whose quick thinking and natural leadership saved the day - was in close contact with his father during his ordeal and Colin Foale has painted a moving portrait of courage in the most hostile environment imaginable. Through Michael's early interest in space, family tragedy, NASA selection and training, this is Michael's extraordinary story as told by the one man who knows him best.
