He has commanded the International Space Station, rescued an out-of-control Russian space craft and flown six shuttle missions.
And now, British-born astronaut Michael Foale is to share his experiences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) later this month.
The 60-year-old has spent 373 days in space and in 1995 he became the first Brit to perform a space walk.
He will be visiting Norwich on January 24 for a Q&A session organised by the Pint of Science group, in collaboration with the UEA Science Communication Society and the International Space School Educational Trust.
The event will feature footage of Mr Foale's journey into space and there will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions.
