Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev is the focus of this chronicle of life on the Russian space station Mir, showing what outer space is really like. In addition to the routine day-to-day activities of eating, exercising, and conducting experiments in weightlessness, Krikalev is a bystander to the collapse of the Soviet Union during his 10-month stay onboard Mir in 1991-92.
