Krikalev's first spaceflight was as flight engineer on Soyuz TM-7, launching on 26 November 1988, staying on Mir as part of the Mir EO-4 expedition, and landing on 27 April 1989. Two years later, he undertook a long-duration mission on Mir (EO-8 and EO-9; 1991 to 1992). He then flew on missions STS-60 (1994, to Mir) and STS-88 (1998, to the ISS), followed by two stays on the International Space Station (Expedition 1 in 2000-2001, and Expedition 11 in 2005). Krikalev has spent a record 803 days in space. Photographed in Russia, in May 1989, after his return from his first spaceflight.
