Posted on 12/07/2017 11:57:17 AM PST by NorseViking
In 1985 one of the most audacious space rescue missions was launched by the Soviets to recover a space station that had been dead for months due to an unknown fault.
A feat that was unparalleled in space exploration and rewrote the books on what was thought possible: and yet, its story has fallen into obscurity and conspiracy theories.
This is the story Salyut 7 and how the Soviet crew of two, Vladimir Dzhanibekov and Victor Savinikh against the odds rescued it in a daring mission that was the first of its kind in space exploration.
**Apologies to all the Russian speakers out there on the mispronunciations of the crew names, hopefully, next time I will have a better source for how they are meant to sound**

Why is FR praising Communists?
That’s more about science and space exploration. Not that much about communism.
“Why is FR praising Communists?”
Looks like the OP may be a “native”.
NorseViking: Welcome to FR.
Interesting story. Glad you posted it.
They succeeded because of those positive waves.
I was unaware of the story. Thanks for posting.
