Today in history - October 16, 1976


Soyuz 23  was a 1976 Soviet manned space flight, the second to the Salyut 5 space station. Cosmonauts Vyacheslav Zudov and Valery Rozhdestvensky arrived at the station, but an equipment malfunction did not allow docking and the mission had to be aborted. 

Soyuz 22 was launched to orbit 15 September 1976 at the unusually high inclination of 64.75┬░, not used since the Voskhod program. On 16 October, Soyuz 23 returned to earth and landed 8:45 p.m. local time, but weather conditions were poor and the cosmonauts experienced an unusual recovery. They landed on a freezing Lake Tengiz, 8 km from shore, in the middle of a blizzard.
