Soviets launch new spaceship

MOSCOW (AP) - Two Soviet
cosmonauts rocketed aloft in a
spaceship yesterday for an ex-
pected linkup with an orbiting
station launched two weeks
ago.
The Soyuz 21 spacecraft was
the first manned launch since
last July's joint U.S.-Soviet
Apollo-Soyuz linkup.
Soyuz 21 headed for a series
of "joint experiments" with the
space laboratory Salyut 5, orbi-
ted on June 22, the official Tass
news agency said.
Neither Soviet commentators
nor Western space analysts saw
the launch of the 27th manned
Soviet space flight as more than
a relatively routine continuation
of Soviet manned space experi-
ments.
"We have not set any basi-
cally new engineering problems
for the spaceship. It is just
another working start under our
orbital program," said veteran
Soviet cosmonaut Lt. Gen. Vlad-
imir Shatalov.
One Western specialist said,
"This sounds like a fairly stand-
ard operation."
The two cosmonauts were shot
into orbit from the Baikonur
Cosmodrome in Kazahkstan in
Soviet Central Aasia, 1,400 miles
southeast of Moscow, at 8:09
a.m., EDT, and soon radioed
back that all systems were
functioning normally.
Aboard were Col. Boris Voly-
nov, 41, a veteran cosmonaut
who rode into space aboard Soy-

uz-5 in 1969, and army Lt. Col.
Vitali Zbolobov, 39, a mustach-
ioed flight engineer on his first
space trip. He is the 35th Soviet
cosmonaut to fly in space.
Soviet officials gave no details
of Soyuz 21's program, but
Western observers said they ex-
pected it to dock with the orbit-
ing Salyut space station within
the next 48 to 72 hours. "If it
doesn't, we can assume some-
thing has gone wrong, one
specialist said.
In a statement before take-
off Volynov said the current
flight "opens a series of man-
ned flights" under the current
five-year plan. He added, "We
shall resume experiments with
orbital stations that represent
the principal lines of develop-
ment in Soviet astronautics."
Cosmonaut Gen. Alexei Leon-
ov, who was one of the two So-
viets on the Apollo-Soyuz flight,
told Tass earlier this year that
long-functioning orbital stations
are now the main thrust of
Soviet space research.
The United States is not ex-
pected to resume its manned
space program until the space
shuttle flights beginning after
1978.
Dr. James 0. Fletcher, ad-
ministrator of the National Ae-
ronautics and Space Administra-
tion, commented: "On behalf
of NASA I congratulate the
Soviet Union on the successful
launching of Soyuz 21. I wish
the cosmonauts every good for-

tune for the link-up with the
Salyut 5 and their safe return
to earth."
The Soviet record for manned
flight was set last year by the
two-man crew of Soyuz-18,
which stayed in orbit with a
Salyut station for 62 days. The
American record, set earlier in
1975 in a Skylab space station,
is 84 days.
Last February, another Soyuz
spacecraft, Soyuz-2, docked with
the Salyut 4 laboratory, ap-
parently to recharge its batter-
ies. That flight was not mann-
ed.
The Salyut 4 apparently re-
mains in orbit, but it is be-
lieved no longer capable of sus-
taining a manned crew.
Leonov, who is deputy chief
of the Baikonur space center.
described the Soyuz 21 team as
'perfectly trained for the mis-
sion, and furthermore very good

athletes. Both cosmonauts are
on volleyball and basketball
teams and are very good foot-
ball players."
Volynov, who enrolled in the
space program in 1960, has been
a backup cosmonaut on stand-
by for a number of manned
launchings in addition to his
stint as commander of Soyuz S.
Zholohov is an army officer
who enrolled in the space pro-
gram in 1963, and was backup
flight engineer for Salyut 3.
The launch received the nor-
mal heavy coverage given by
Soviet broadcasters and press
to space shots. The radio in-
troduced its bulletin with the
signal chimes reserved for on-
ly the most important announce-
ments, and television followed
soon afterward with extensive
film coverage of the blastoff.
As the space-suited cosmo-
nauts climbed into their rocket,

Leonov coluld be heard wish-
ing them "health and happi-
ness."
There was chatting and laugh-
ter and one of the cosmonauts
vowed, "We'll try to do every-
thing as we learned to do it."
Photographs were taken and
the spacecraft closed.
As the rocket accelerated
from its launching pad, one of
the cosmonauts saidby radio,
"Everything's okay. And so is
our mood."
