In her dreams, the first Briton in space revisits staggering views of the Earth
In 1991, Helen Sharman became the first Briton in space. Since then, she has never let go of the ethereal feeling of floating above the Earth. In this short animation, Sherman recalls a recurring dream that evokes the transcendent yet humanising experience of looking down at her home planet from far, far above.
