    The seven cosmonauts of the Soyuz 6/7/8 mission. Sitting from left to right are Valeriy Kubasov, Georgiy Shonin, Vladimir Shatalov, and Alesksey Yeliseyev. Standing from left to right are Vickor Gorbatko, Anatoliy Filipchenko, and Vladislav Volkov. Soyuz 6/7/8 launched a mission a day through October 11-13, 1969. The Soyuz 7 and 8 crafts planned to perform a semi-automatic docking, but the spacecrafts never came within less than 500 meters of each other due to the failure of the automatic rendezvous system, Igla. The Soyuz 6/7/8 crafts landed one craft per day on October 16 to 18. Publication information: Image from the files of Peter Gorin.
