Valery Alexandrovich Yazdovsky, former Soviet civilian cosmonaut, has died on November 10. He was the original flight engineer assigned to spend 8 days in space aboard Soyuz 13 in December 1973.

Yazdovsky was born July 18, 1930. Following graduation from Moscow Aviation Institute Yazdovsky went to work at the Korolev design bureau. He took part in the design of the Vostok, Voskhod and Soyuiz spacecraft prior to enrolling in the cosmonaut team in 1969.

Yazdovsky played a prominent role in the development of the Soyuz 13 mission’s scientific program, but he and prime crew commander Lev Vorobyov were relegated to the backup role less than a month prior to launch. Their places were taken by Pyotr Klimuk and Valentin Lebedev. Yazdovsky left the cosmonaut team in 1983.
