Photo made in 1988 on the MIR station.

First journalist travelled to MIR station in year 1990. He was making live air shows from the MIR space station on Japanese TV. However during first moments in space it was discovered he was suffering from a “space sickness”, a variation of motion sickness. So his flight wasn’t very productive. As someone explained: “zero gravity is a feeling that you are falling down, constantly, 24 hours a day you are falling, falling, falling”.

Same year an accident almost happened with MIR station: it almost collided with “PROGRESS” space ship – only a few meters separated two objects moving at speeds of 8 km per second.

Year 1992. Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev went to space station MIR from USSR to return one year later to another country – Russia.
