Caption: Titov before the Soyuz TM-4 mission, at Baikonur, Kazakhstan, in the cockpit of the Soyuz TM-4 spacecraft, in 1987. Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Titov (born 1947) was selected as a cosmonaut in 1976. He made his first spaceflight in 1983 on the Soyuz T-8 mission, and survived the aborted launch of the Soyuz T-10-1 mission later that year. He was later selected to command the Soyuz TM-4 mission, successfully launching from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, on 21 December 1987, travelling to the Mir space station. Titov and flight engineer Manarov spent 178 days in space, landing safely on 17 June 1988. Titov flew two further space missions in 1995 and 1997, travelling back to Mir on the US space shuttles. He retired in 1998.
