Space Interest.- Salyut-7

Manuscript notes by engineer O.I. Gerasimenko featuring diagrams describing repair procedures for a spacesuit, to be done while in space, 7 pages, 29 October 1983.

***The repairs were done after a planned spacewalk aboard Salyut-7 had to be scrapped in October 1983, due to a leak in the spacesuit. A procedure was devised to test for the location of the leak. Following these procedures these procedures were transmitted to the Cosmonauts, who were able to carry it out on 29 October. They manged to install two additional solar batteries on the exterior of Salyut-7, which were necessary to meet their power consumption needs.

Estimate: £2,000-£3,000
