- n. either of two Soviet space stations launched in the 1970s
“Fidel Castro Ruz, Leonid Brezhnev, the cosmonauts accompanying them went inside the "Salyut" station.”
“They also saw another trainer, the "Salyut" station. the 23-metre cylinder in which the latest equipment has been installed, is a precise replica of the first long-term orbital station.”
“These secret military spaceships were intended to spy on the Soviet Union's cold-war enemies from on high, under the pretence that they were civilian "Salyut" research stations.”
“The Soyuz and Protons have been doing automated rendezvous for decades with the ISS, MIR, and even Salyut programs.”
“Coincidentally all serious projects to get into space (Soyuz-Progress, Mir/Salyut, ISS, Bigelow) beyond a sortie (solo Shuttle, Apollo, CxP apparently) are all highly modular and fit in that payload range.”
“For example, consider the disparity in flight rates between Saturn 1B and Saturn V during the Skylab program or between the Soyuz and Proton in the Russian Salyut & Mir programs.”
“Salyut, Mir and especially ISS are exemplars of this strategy.”
“My guess is, Tiangong-1 is supposed to be a man-tended research station, similar to, but smaller than, the first generation Salyut. libs0n”
“Actually, the first version of "Discovery" would probaly resemble the older (And very small) Salyut space station with a propulsion module for Earth departure and return bolted on to it.”
‘Salyut’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
Looking for tweets for Salyut.
