A badge of the Vladimir M. Komarov Astronautical Rocketry Club of Ljubljana was sent to space
exactly 35 years ago as the first Slovene object ever sent to space.
Three Soviet cosmonauts took the badge on board of spacecraft Soyuz T-10 (Soyuz T-10b on West)
which was launched from Baikonur in Kazakhstan on February 8th, 1984 at 01.07 pm CET. Soyuz T-10 took the cosmonauts
to the space station Salyut 7. Cosmonauts Leonid Kizim, Vladimir Solovyov and Oleg Atkov returned back to Earth
on October 2nd, 1984 after a record long flight of 237 days.
The badge, however, returned back to Earth earlier, on April 11th, 1984 with a Soviet-Indian crew which visited
Salyut 7. Our club got the badge back on April 26th 1984 and still keeps it as something special.
