Three Soviet cosmonauts docked their Soyuz T-14 spacecraft with the orbiting manned Salyut 7 space station, the official news agency Tass reported. The T-14 was launched Tuesday with cosmonauts Vladimir Vasyutin, Georgy Grechko and Alexander Volkov aboard. They joined Vladimir Dzhanibekov and Viktor Savinykh, who have been on Salyut 7 since June. After eight days, Dzhanibekov will return to Earth with Grechko, leaving the other three aboard the station. The cosmonauts are expected to conduct experiments in geophysics, astrophysics, medicine and biology.
