Soyuz Commander Mikhail Tyurin, Expedition 39 Commander Koichi Wakata and Flight Engineer Rick Mastracchio are beginning to pack cargo and personal supplies for their return to Earth. The home-bound crew will enter their Soyuz TMA-11M spacecraft for a 3.5 hour trip home next month.

Veterok (Ветерок, “Light Breeze”) and Ugolyok (Уголёк, “Coal”) were the last soviet space dogs, launched on 22 February 1966 on board Cosmos 110, and spent 22 days in orbit before landing on 16 March. This spaceflight of record-breaking duration was not surpassed by humans until Soyuz 11 in June 1971 and still stands as the longest space flight by dogs.

Soyuz 11 (Russian: Союз 11, Union 11) was the only manned mission to board the world's first space station, Salyut 1 (Soyuz 10 had soft-docked but had not been able to enter due to latching problems). The mission arrived at the space station on 7 June 1971 and departed on 30 June. The mission ended in disaster when the crew capsule depressurised during preparations for reentry, killing the three-man crew

On 30.6.1971, the crew of the Soyuz 11 spacecraft died from lack of air on their way back to earth. The only humans to have died outside the Earth's atmosphere.
