    This is a hand made, all metal Model of the Russian Soyuz T manned spacecraft built by the Energia Company.

It is an authentic piece
of Russian Space History.

The model measures 8.5 x 11 inches.  The Soyuz-T first manned flight took place in 1980 and was flown by cosmonauts Malyshev and Aksyonov. It was the first test flight of the improved Soyuz spacecraft. On this Soyuz T-2 mission, a new guidance system failed on approach to the Salyut-6.  The two cosmonauts were able to dock manually. There were two more Soyuz-T flights to the Salyut-6 space station until 1982 when Anatoliy Berezovoy flew a Soyuz T-5 to the new Salyut-7 space station.

    Here are two rescue crew members using a Special Wrench to open
a returning Soyuz T capsule and allow the cosmonauts to exit
the spacecraft.

Here is a cutaway view of a Soyuz spacecraft
    The Soyuz TM (The word "Soyuz" means "Union") was a modernized version of the Soyuz T with new docking and rendezvous, radio communications, emergency, and integrated parachute/landing engine systems. It used a more durable metal body and lighter heat shield material. It was tested first in an unmanned flight. It was the manned spacecraft used to ferry crews to the Mir and the International Space Station.
The Kurs rendezvous and docking system permitted the Soyuz TM to maneuver independently of the station.

     The lighter rendezvous system and improved launch escape tower permitted higher payloads, or more maneuvering propellant to be carried.

Here is a Soyuz Spacecraft blasting off from Russia and being lifted into orbit by an Energia Launch Vehicle.

Various launch configurations for the Soyuz Spacecraft.

    The Soyuz-TM serves as both a ferry for Russian crews coming to and from the station as well as a "lifeboat" for any emergency escapes. Soyuz is launched on a Soyuz rocket from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, it can carry 3 people. The spacecraft has been in use by the Russians since 1967 so it is an old vehicle and it has been updated several times. It was used to ferry people up and down from the Russian space station Mir and now brings people & supplies to the International Space Station.
