Salyut-7 with Soyuz T-14 in orbit

Salyut-7 and Soyuz T-14 (left end) in orbit, seen from the departing Soyuz T-13 spacecraft. Salyut- 7 was launched on 19 April 1982. A total of seven crews visited the space station before late 1984, when a power failure lead to the loss of life support functions during an unmanned period. Soyuz T-13 was sent to revive and repair the space station, the task being completed in mid-1985. The final visiting crew, arriving in Soyuz T-14, stayed on board for 64 days. When T-14 arrived, the two crews made the first in-orbit crew transfer; previously one crew had departed before the next arrived. Salyut-7 re-entered the earth's atmosphere and broke up on 7 February 1991
