edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Salyut programme:

1) Section on program background:

  • Failure of N1 lunar program. Done, added as context to History intro
  • Chelomei's Almaz and TKS plans. urgently needed
  • Korolev Bureau's intervention. Done, added OKB-1's "conspiracy" to History intro
  • Add a little bit of reference of USAF's Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) (in reference to Almaz)
  • Add a little bit of comparison of NASA's Skylab with Salyut (1st gen/2nd gen)

2) Vast expansion of individual station sections.

Done some, could be some more.

3) Section regarding support craft:

  • Soyuz: Incorporate into History intro?
  • TKS: Incorporate into History intro and the Mir/ISS modules? urgently needed
  • Progress Done, incorporated into Second Generation intro

4) Section on program's legacy.


Useful information about the Almaz stations and TKS can be found here: russianspaceweb.com/almaz.html Certainly something from there can be integrated here.

Priority 1 /Need references

History[edit]

There should be some background to the article. Korolev had aspirations for a Space Station and the Soviets had planned to use the N1 to launch a large structure going back to 65. The rush to put up Salyut was a result of the N1 failures.

Article title capitalization[edit]

I suspect the WP:MOS would have us title this article Salyut program, reversing the sense of the current redirect. Should we comply? (sdsds - talk) 20:12, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

NASA diagram[edit]

The article has a NASA diagram entitled "Development of the Soviet/Russian space stations and derivatives", this chap here. I can understand why it exists, and why it is relevant, but it is hard to comprehend, it provides too much detail, and the lengthy caption makes it seem even more complicated; furthermore, the caption makes the diagram take up a lot of space on the page, but the diagram makes no sense without the caption, which cannot easily be condensed. I would suggest removing the diagram from here and putting it in a generic article about the Soviet manned space programme. I would do this myself, but clearly someone has gone to the trouble of uploading it, and perhaps they can make sense of it after all. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 16:40, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

That diagram is just for the Salyut program, so it's appropriately used here.. but I agree it's confusing. Basically it's a timeline contrasting the two types of "Salyut" spacecraft: the civilian (on top) and the military (on the bottom). I agree, it could be improved and simplified.

NR 30mm[edit]

The statement concerning the gun is not confirmed by the sources. The quote thers is that "several sources confirm that after the last crew left the test cannon was fired to depletion via remote control". Not more, not less. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.27.9.213 (talk) 13:02, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Correcting an error in an image file name[edit]

The name of the file, File:Model of Salyut-7 with two Soyuz spacecrafts.JPEG contains an unusual plural form of spacecraft. Spacecrafts is not usually used unless one refers to skills used for spaceflight. The file is linked to only four pages including this article. The name could be changed for the file and each of the four links. Moving a file to a different name is something I have never done. - Fartherred (talk) 00:35, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

I don't want to start a British versus American English debate here, but woudn't it be better to move this page to Salyut program? There is Soviet space program, Chinese space program etc--Arado (talk) 10:03, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
