▪ Soviet cosmonaut
born June 19, 1933, Aktyubinsk, Kazakhstan, U.S.S.R. [now Aqtöbe, Kazakhstan]
died June 29, 1971, in space, probably over Iran

      Soviet cosmonaut, design engineer on the Soyuz 11 mission, in which he, mission commander Georgy T. Dobrovolsky, and flight engineer Vladislav N. Volkov remained in space a record 24 days and created the first manned orbital scientific station by docking their Soyuz 11 spacecraft with the unmanned Salyut station launched two months earlier. The three were found dead in their space capsule after it made a perfect landing in Kazakhstan. The accident was caused by decompression resulting from a leak in their capsule when a hatch was improperly closed. While in the space station, they had conducted meteorological and plant-growing experiments.
