Second Expedition to Salyut 7 - 1983

1983 was a less than successful year for Salyut 7's mission planners. It started and finished badly.

First - Soyuz T-8 failed to dock as a result of the pylon supporting its rendezvous radar aerial having been damaged during launch, possibly by the Soyuz rocket's shroud as it pulled away during the ascent to orbit. Had the mission been successful then we would probably have seen a new endurance record, beating the 211 days by Valentin Lebedev and Anatoly Berezovoi the previous year.

Later in the year, the mission that was intended to be Soyuz T-10 failed when the Soyuz rocket caught fire on the launch pad. The crew and their cabin was pulled clear by the Soyuz emergency escape rocket. They landed heavily some four to five kilometres from the launch pad.
