Caption: Crew of Soyuz 13. Pyotr Ilyich Klimuk (b.1942, left) and Valentin Vitalyevich Lebedev (b.1942), Soviet cosmonauts and crew of the Soyuz 13 mission, Soyuz 13 was the first dedicated science mission in the Soviet manned spaceflight programme. Launched on 18 December 1973, Soyuz 13 carried the Orion 2 space observatory. Lebedev operated this, taking ultraviolet spectra of thousands of stars. Spectra taken of planetary nebula IC 2149 revealed the presence of aluminium and titanium atoms, not previously observed in planetary nebulae. The mission lasted for 127 orbits and took 7 days 21 hours. Photographed at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre on 26 July 1973.
