About the book:

In this riveting account of the ill-fated American missions to MIR, bestselling author Bryan Burrough tells the incredible true story of how a joint Russian-American crew narrowly survived almost every trauma an astronaut could imagine: fire, power blackouts, chemical leaks, docking failures, nail-biting spacewalks and constant mechanical breakdowns, all climaxing in a dramatic midspace collision that left everyone on board scrambling for their lives.

Based on hundreds of hours of interviews with the cosmonauts, astronauts, Russian and American ground controllers, psychologists, and scientists involved, Drangonfly is the saga of a mission as fraught with political and bureaucraticintrigues as any Washington potboiler.
