List of Salyut expeditions

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a chronological list of expeditions to the Salyut space stations. Initially these expeditions were not numbered, however the crews of Salyut 6 and Salyut 7 were numbered EO-n, where n is sequentially increased with each expedition to that particular station. Taxi crews are excluded from this list (see List of human spaceflights to Salyut space stations for details). Salyut commanders are listed in italics. "Duration" refers to the crew and does not always correspond to "Flight up" or "Flight down". Missions which failed to reach or dock with the station are highlighted in red.

The Salyut programme was a series of Soviet space stations launched during the 1970s and 1980s. Six Salyut space stations were manned, whilst a number of other stations were not, either due to failures, or because they were prototypes and not designed to be manned. Manned flights as part of the Salyut programme ended in 1986, when Salyut was superseded by the Mir space station.
