Re: Krikalev Approaches Time-in-Space Record



Congradulation Sergei Krikalev.

I remember when Avdeyev broke the Recorde in July
1999, he was chatting on the ham radio that day and
everyone was congradulating him.

For a Mir flash back, here are some pictures
from Mir during Avdeyev's last misssion
which lasted 1 full year.
