The supply ship collided with Mir, punching a hole in one of the modules of Mir, damaging a number of the solar panels, and inducing a tumbling motion that prevented the remaining solar panels from pointing toward the sun. Michael Foale provides his personal account of the experience, and explains the mathematical methods involved in rescuing Mir from what would almost certainly have been its demise had they been forced to evacuate and leave it tumbling without power until it burned up re-entering the earth's atmosphere33ocn802717066visu19800.47Sweet smell of successSummary: Program shows the analysis of a complex organic mixture by professional chemical problem-solvers at the Physico-Chemical Measurements Unit at Harwell.
