Re-entering the International Space Station – Science Spectrum

My first contact with a space station was about 30 years ago. On October 2, 1991, a physics teacher sent a TV into the classroom. Austrian news broadcast live from Baikonur. A Soyuz rocket was launched there that day to bring Franz Vehbok to Russia’s Mir space station as part of the Ostromir mission. This was his first flight into space and the first time an Austrian had ever flown into space. I was 14 at the time and am very impressed.
