SOYUZ SPACE MISSION
7x9½ black and white photograph with an inscription from cosmonaut Vladislav Volkov, who perished in the Soyuz 11 mission, shown below the seven cosmonauts who all flew in Earth orbit at the same time in 1969.
Photograph signed: "Gorbatko", "Shonin", "A Filipchenko", "V Kubasov", "V Volkov", "V Shatalov", "A Yeliseyev", B/w 7x9½. Inscribed by Vladislav Volkov. Inscription unknown. VLADISLAV VOLKOV (1936-1971) was a Soviet cosmonaut who flew on two missions: Soyuz 7 and Soyuz 11. Volkov graduated from the Moscow Aviation Institute in 1959, designing space crafts for the Soviet Union before being chosen as a cosmonaut. His first space mission was in 1969 with Soyuz 7, a successful mission. Two years later, he was aboard Soyuz 11, which at first also seemed successful. However, upon re-entry and landing, the Soyuz 11 capsule was opened and Volkov and two other crew members were dead inside. A valve had opened during travel and the capsule's atmosphere vented away, causing the three crew members to suffer hypoxia. ANATOLIY FILIPCHENKO (born in 1928) spent over 11 days in space aboard two Soviet space flights: Soyuz 7 (1969) and Soyuz 16 (1974). In 1985, Filipchenko took part in a dangerous mission to revive the dead Salyut 7 space station. The crew made a five-hour spacewalk to restore solar panels and repair power systems to the station, and Salyut 7 became functional once again after their daring repairs. VIKTOR GORBATKO (b. 1934) was a research cosmonaut aboard Soyuz 7 (1969) and Commander of Soyuz 24 (1977) and Soyuz 37 (1980). He has received multiple awards for his work on Russian space programs, and after retiring, went on to teach at the Air Force Engineering Academy in Moscow, Russia. VALERI KUBASOV (1935-2014) was flight engineer on Soyuz 6 (1969) and Soyuz 19 (1975) and commander of Soyuz 36 (1980), working on the Salyut 6 Space Station, returning to Earth on Soyuz 35. VLADMIR SHATALOV (b. 1927) made history aboard Soyuz 4 (January 14-17, 1969), when he docked with Soyuz 5 (January 15-18, 1969) in the first link-up of two manned space vehicles. Shatalov was also aboard Soyuz 8 (launched October 13, 1969) as part of the triple launch of a space lab construction team, and Soyuz 10 (launched April 22, 1971) in the first successful docking with a space station. GEORGI SHONIN (1935-1997) was the commander of Soyuz 6 (1969), his only space mission. The main objective of Soyuz 6, whose crew also included cosmonaut Valeri Kubasov, was to perform experiments with space welding. There were no EVA's on this flight as there were no pressure suits aboard. Soyuz 6 was in orbit at the same time as the Soyuz 7 and Soyuz 8 spacecraft, but a planned rendezvous of the three capsules had to be aborted. ALEKSEI YELISEYEV (b. 1934) is a Soviet cosmonaut, flying on three Soyuz missions: Soyuz 5, Soyuz 8, and Soyuz 10. He received multiple awards for his work with the space programs, and after retirement, went on to teach at the Bauman Higher Technical School. Light ink smearing on inscription. Pencil markings on verso. Lightly soiled on verso. Fine condition.

LT. GENERAL VLADIMIR SHATALOV
Born: December 8, 1927 in Petropavlovsk, Kazakh SSR

Vladimir Aleksandrovich Shatalov (born December 8, 1927 in Petropavlovsk) is a former Soviet cosmonaut who flew three space missions of the Soyuz programme: Soyuz 4, Soyuz 8, and Soyuz 10.

From 1971 to 1987 he was Commander of Cosmonaut Training, and Director of the Cosmonaut Training Centre from then until 1991.
 
Quote: "When we look into the sky it seems to us to be endless. We breathe without thinking about it, as is natural... and then you sit aboard a spacecraft, you tear away from Earth, and within ten minutes you have been carried straight through the layer of air, and beyond there is nothing! The 'boundless' blue sky, the ocean which gives us breath and protects us from endless black and death, is but an infinitesimally thin film. How dangerous it is to threaten even the smallest part of this gossamer covering, this conserver of life."

VALERI N. KUBASOV
Born: January 7, 1935 in Vyazniki, Vladimir Oblast, USSR
Died: February 19, 2014 in Moscow, Russia


Valeri Nikolayevich Kubasov (born 7 January 1935 in Vyazniki) is a former Soviet cosmonaut who flew on two missions in the Soyuz programme as a flight engineer: Soyuz 6 and Soyuz 19 (the Apollo-Soyuz mission), and commanded Soyuz 36 in the Intercosmos programme. On 21 July 1975, the Soyuz 7K-TM module used for ASTP landed in Kazakhstan at 5:51 p.m. and Kubasov was the first to exit the craft.
 
He was also involved in the development of the Mir space station. He retired from the Soviet space program in March 1993. He was later deputy director of RKK Energia.
 
Kubasov seems to have cheated death twice during his space career. He was part of the crew that was originally intended to fly Soyuz 2, which was found to have the same faulty parachute sensor that resulted in Vladimir Komarov's death on Soyuz 1 and was later launched without a crew. Later, he was grounded for medical reasons before the Soyuz 11 flight, which killed the crew when the capsule was accidentally depressurised by a faulty valve.
