Title: Life in Space
Url: http://www.vega.org.uk/video/programme/83
Publisher: Vega Science Trust
Description: In this video lecture, Helen Sharman, the first British astronaut, gives an account of her personal experiences on the space station Mir. Using models and film to illustrate key scientific concepts, she discusses the way the Third Law of Newton and convection apply to rockets, space flight, weightlessness and survival. Sharman explains how breathing, eating, using the toilet, and recycling were accomplished on Mir. She answers questions from an audience of young school children (aged 9-12 years) about weightlessness, the effect of space on bones and joints, and the training of astronauts. The video is 29 minutes in length.
