As a cosmonaut Serebrov performed four space flights. In August 1982 he performed a space flight as a flight engineer on board the Soyuz T-7 spaceship with Leonid Popov- Chief pilot and woman-cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya, who was a cosmonaut researcher. Serebrov worked on board the orbital station Salyut-6 with the main space crew - Anatoly Berezovoi and Valentin Lebedev.

Sereberov was on his second mission to space in April 1983, when he was sent to the orbital station Salyut-7 on board the spaceship Soyuz- T-8 with Chief Pilot Vladimir Titov and flight engineer Gennady Strekalov. Because of the failure of the aerial on board the spaceship and malfunctioning of the rapprochement system “Igla” the scheduled docking of the “Soyuz T-8” with the Salyut-7 orbital station was not carried out. Serebrov’s space mission then continued for two days.

His third space flight as a flight engineer sent to the orbital station “Mir” with Chief pilot Alexander Viktorenko continued since September 6 , 1989 until February 19, 1990. During the space flight Serebrov made five space walks.

Serebrov had been to space a fourth time as a flight engineer of the Soyuz-TM-17 spaceship with Chief pilot Vasily Tsibliyev and research astronaut Jean-Pierre Hignere since July 1, 1993 until January 14. 1994. During the flight Serebrov made five space walks.

Valentina Tereshkova turns another year older today. She became the first woman in space on 16 June 1963 aboard Vostok 6. Her call sign was чайка(chaika), seagull.

When I was entering syndication, the USSR was in the final stages of Gorbachev’s perestroika policy. Coming soon: 10+ years of epic starvation and misery in post-Soviet Russia as gangster capitalism came in.
