Catalogue Note

A depiction of Cosmonauts Vladimir Dzhanibekov and Victor Savinikh conducting a spacewalk to repair the Photovoltaic Array of the Salyut 7 space station. The two cosmonauts battled bitter cold and extreme conditions to rescue the up-to-then successful space station, which had suddenly fallen silent and unresponsive after a cascade of electrical shortages had knocked out the radio transmitters and receivers. Its rescue by Dzhanibekov and Savinikh was one of the boldest, most complicated in-space repair efforts ever accomplished.
