ESA astronat Jean-Pierre Haignere blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on February 20th, 1999, bound for a six month stay aboard the Russian space station Mir. This mission, named Perseus, is the fifth French-Russian mission to date.
Along with Russian commander Viktor Afanassiev and Slovak Ivan Bella, Haignere was carried into space in a Soyuz capsule onboard a Salyut launcher. Onboard Mir, Haignere will carry out European experiments in microgravity, two of which have been developed by ESA.
This video includes highlights of the launch, as well as training footage of Haignere and the CNES astronaut Claudie Andre-Deshays.
