Caption: Soyuz TM-12 astronauts training in May 1991. At right are Soviet cosmonauts Sergey Krikalev (top, flight engineer, born 1958) and Anatoly Artsebarsky (bottom, commander, born 1956). At centre is British astronaut Helen Sharman (born 1963). They are training in a model of the Soyuz spacecraft to be used for their mission. In 1989, Sharman had applied to become the UK's first person in space, part of a total of 13,000 applicants (Project Juno). She was selected in February 1991. She spent seven days on the Mir space station, launching on the Soyuz TM-12 spacecraft (18 May 1991) and returning on the Soyuz TM-11 spacecraft (26 May 1991).
