Cosmonaut. Born in Moscow, Russia, he was aviation engineer when he was recruited to be a Soviet Cosmonaut in September 1966. He flew aboard Soyuz 7 in October 1969 and spent 23 days on Salyut 1, the world's first space station, in 1971. On June 6, 1971, he served as flight engineer on the Soyuz-11 spacecraft with Cosmonauts V. I. Patsayev 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 Moscow is named after him and the Volkov carter on the Moon is also named in his honor.
