Prongof108 #65 with Major Tunde live from Salyut 8T Part 1
26 September 2016
We are trying to help Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.
So we invited him onto our show, in cooperation with the IRRE – Interplanetare Raumrettung e.V. to make it happen.
