On June 16—flight day 10 and two days after water supplies were initially supposed to run out—“Rodnik” was fully operational. There were finally enough working systems and enough supplies to continue the mission. Although the station itself now is gone, its legacy of triumph over adversity remains. Salyut 7 experienced some of the most serious problems of any station in the Salyut series, but while earlier stations were lost, the skill and determination of the designers, engineers, ground controllers, and cosmonauts of Salyut 7 kept the station flying. That spirit lives on today in the International Space Station, which has flown continuously for over 15 years. It too experiences systems failures, coolant leaks, other problems, but like their predecessors who worked on Salyut 7, the designers, engineers, ground controllers, cosmonauts, and astronauts exhibit that same determination to keep flying.
