liked it

An astronaut who trains with the cosmonauts and lives on Mir. I appreciated that someone would stand up and say that life in space is difficult and precarious, but beautiful and enriching. I was appalled that the Russians continued the pretext of Mir being in good when, in fact, it was slowing falling apart. I'm glad that Linenger was able to cut through the politics give us the truth about that relationship.
