– Vladimir Kovalyonok

Vladimir Kovalyonok was a Soviet cosmonaut.  He was part of the space program from 1967 to 1984, and commanded three missions into space.  On his second mission, he spent 139 days in the Salyut Space Station, setting a new record for time in space.  He later served as the Director of the Moscow Zhukovski Military Air Force Engineering Academy, and is a Major General in the Air Force.
