Greetings from the flame trench! One year ago at this very moment...I was sitting on top of this rocket...Soyuz 23S...prepared for my date with destiny..."Up, up the long delirious, burning blue, I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace where never lark, or even eagle flew...And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod the high untresspassed sanctity of space...Put out my hand and touched the face of God."
