UNIVERSITY OF LINCOLNSHIRE & HUMBERSIDE

 

ASTRONAUT MICHAEL FOALE

Humble apologies.

 

Please note the error which appeared in yesterday’s press release headed ‘University to honour Britain’s first astronaut’ (16th February 2000)

 

It has now been pointed out to us that Helen Sharman went into space in 1991, beating Michael Foale by one year.

 

Please bear this in mind should you follow up our press release.

 

Kind regards
