  Salyut - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Salyuts were all relatively simple structures consisting of a single main module placed into orbit in a single launch.
Salyut 3 was launched on June 25, 1974.
After Salyut 6 manned operations were discontinued in 1981, a heavy unmanned spacecraft called TKS and developed using hardware left from the canceled Almaz program was docked to the station as a hardware test.

 Salyut
An early series of Soviet space stations of which seven were launched over a period of a decade beginning in 1971 with Salyut 1, the world’s first space station.
Salyut 1 was abandoned on Oct. 11, 1971, but several successor stations over the next 15 years helped pave the way for Mir.
The successful Salyut 4 was deorbited on Feb. 3, 1977, bringing the highest civilian honor, “Hero of the Socialist Labor”, to the chief designer of the spacecraft, Yuri Semenov, and one of the assembly technicians, V. Morozov (despite official objections that Morozov was not a member of the Communist Party)

The first space station was the Salyut 1, launched by the Soviet Union in April 1971.
Salyut 1 was a simple station with an open-loop life-support system and was launched fully assembled.
Salyut 6 and 7 also had two docking ports, which allowed both a piloted module carrying a replacement crew and an unpiloted, automated supply-delivery vehicle to dock to the station at the same time.

 The first Space Station - Salyut 1
Salyut 1 was the first space station put into orbit.
The main purpose of Salyut 1 was to study the effects of long duration spaceflight on the human body and to take photographs of the Earth from space.
Salyut was originally called "Zarya," but this was changed before launch so there would be no confusion between the station and the ground control call sign of the same name.

Salyut 1 reentered the atmosphere in October of '71, six months after it was launched.
Salyut 2 successfully made it to orbit, but an onboard fire burned a hole in the side, and the modules were depressurized.

The core of the pressurized hull was similar to the Salyut one the main differences laid in the propulsion unit, solar panels and the rear docking hatch for Soyuz (instead of the forward one of Salyuts).
Salyut 3/Almaz 2 career was short because it hosted only the first crew while the second one didn’t performed the docking with the station.

The Salyut station is much more comfortable than the Soyuz, but the mission has revealed it needs many improvements, including: a unit for ejecting liquids from the station; solar panels, and scientific instruments, that can be automatically pointed at the sun or their target and stabilised; an improved control section; better crew rest provisions.
Salyut 1 was kept aloft to study how the systems behaved over an extended period, in order to identify fixes to improve their reliability on later flights.

The second space station, Salyut 2, was launched in April 1973; but the vehicle suffered a catastrophic explosion, which tore the solar panels, the docking apparatus, and the radio transponder from the craft and left it tumbling in a low-Earth orbit from which it decayed in late May 1973.

 Comments in reply to a SeeSat-L post about drag changes for Salyut 1 in 1971   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
My opinion is no. It appears that the part of the orbit that was causing most of the drag moved from solar "1 PM" to solar "morning" during this time and that is why the drag did not increase as much as would have been expected.
1 05160U 71181.99162532.00341268 962 2 05160 51.5682 203.0006 0034678 281.9063 77.8018 16.05011368 11788 Now a major boost of the orbit has occurred and the mean motion is much lower, but the drag term is identical to the previous elset.
And, even though it is expected that the drag occurs at perigee, the drag for a near-circular orbit occurs at its equator crossings, not its perigee.

Salyut 1, as the station was called, was a modified spaceship that could only house a crew of three.
Despite its simplicity, Salyut 1 was a breakthrough because it enabled people to live in space for the first time, instead of merely flying in space.
Unfortunately, the return of the cosmonauts from Salyut 1 to Earth was a tragedy.
