The World's First Space Station Is Launched (1971)

The world's first space station, the Soviet Salyut 1, was launched in 1971. The cosmonauts aboard the Soyuz 11 spacecraft were the first to enter, remaining aboard for 22 days. By 1982, five more Salyut space stations had been orbited successfully, two of them for military purposes. By rotating the crews regularly, the Soviets were able to staff the stations for extended periods. All the Salyut space stations decayed and are no longer in orbit. What happened to Salyut 1? More...

Answer:

Salyut 1 was moved to a higher orbit in July and August 1971 to ensure that it would not be destroyed prematurely through orbital decay. In the meantime, Soyuz capsules were being substantially re-designed to allow pressure suits to be worn during launch, docking maneuvers, and reentry.[4] However, Salyut 1 ran out of supplies before the Soyuz redesign effort was concluded, and it was decided to fire the engines for the last time on October 11, to lower its orbit and ensure prompt destructive re-entry over the Pacific Ocean. After 175 days in space, the first real space station came to an end.


What a tragic end for the crew after they transferred to Soyuz 11. Boo hoo!
Quote:
The crew transferred back to Soyuz 11 and reentered the Earth's atmosphere. After parachuting to a soft landing in Kazakhstan, the recovery team opened the hatch to find all three crew members dead in their couches. An inquest found that a pressure relief valve had malfunctioned during reentry leading to a loss of cabin atmosphere. Russian crews at that time did not wear pressure suits but simple flight overalls.[4]

Shame on you The military (the evil intelligence) in the space!!! OH, NO, NO, NO !!!!
The healthy anti-military people should be given money and other material resources in addition to the existing spiritual resources to stop the evil-intelligence nonsense for good!
