    Alright, I’ll have a go. If I’m the only entrant I stand a chance of winning the t-shirt.

    1 Detecting alpha radiation?
    2 About 100
    3 In the 90’s sometime at a guess – certainly before 2000 when the first resident crew, Expedition 1, arrived in November.
    4 Unity?
    5 Ah, this might be Unity. Maybe.
    6 A Soyuz. If not, then one of the STS (shuttle)
    7 Holding their breath, suspension in the belief of reality or, more likely, metabolic suspension

    fyi, I take a size XXL.

    Cheers,
    Fatty
