Third Expedition to Salyut 7 - 1984

The year was a distinct improvement on 1983 - major success all the way through: Cosmonauts Kizim, Atkov and Solovyov set a new endurance record of 236 days, something that had been planned for 1983 but was curtailed by the Soyuz T-8 failure to dock.

Operationally, everything seemed to go by the book with the long stay crew playing host to two sets of visitors including Rakesh Sharma of India. The Soviet-Indian launch was a live television event.

Svetlana Savitskaya made a second trip into space and became the first woman to take part in an EVA when she stepped outside Salyut 7 with Vladimir Dzhanibekov.

There was serious work to be done in order to stem a leak in Salyut 7's rocket motor system. No less than five EVAs were needed to effect the necessary repairs.
