Cosmonaut. Born in Aktuybinsk, Kazakhstan, he was a civilian engineer when selected to be a Soviet Cosmonaut in 1969. On June 6, 1971, he served as test engineer on the Soyuz-11 spacecraft with Cosmonauts V.N. Volkov and G.T. Dobrovolskiy, launched under the program of the first manned mission to the Salyut space station. During the mission, they established a new world record of duration in space flight with 23 days 18 hours 21 minutes and 43 seconds. Upon re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere the capsule depressurized and all three crew members perished. A street in Kaluga, Russia and the Asteroid 1791 were named in his honor.
