Caption: Shuttle/Mir astronaut training. British-born astronaut C. Michael Foale inside a Soyuz space- craft during training at Star City in Russia. This was to prepare Foale for a stay as the guest researcher on the Russian space station Mir. The Soyuz spacecraft would be used in the event of an emergency evacuation from Mir. Foale replaced the US astronaut Jerry M. Linenger during the joint shuttle/Mir missions STS-84 and Mir-23, lasting from 15th-24th May 1997. This was the sixth time the shuttle docked with Mir. Foale stayed on board Mir until he was picked up by shuttle mission STS- 86 (24th September-6th October 1997) and replaced on Mir by David Wolf.
