NASA Official Biography

ALEXANDER YURIEVICH KALERI
TEST COSMONAUT OF THE ENERGIA ROCKET/SPACE CORPORATION (RSC)

PERSONAL DATA: Born May 13, 1956, in Yurmala, Latvia. He is married to the former Svetlana L. Nosova. They have one child, a son. Alexander enjoys running, reading, and gardening. His mother, Antonina Petrovna Kaleri, resides in Sevastopol, the Ukraine. His father, Yuri Borisovich Kaleri, is deceased.

EDUCATION: Graduated from Moscow Institute of Mechanical Physics in 1979.

SPECIAL HONORS: Hero of the Russian Federation; holds the title of pilot-cosmonaut of the Russian Federation.

EXPERIENCE: In 1979 Kaleri came to work at the Energia Rocket/Space Corporation. He participated in developing design/technical documentation and full-scale tests of the Mir orbital station. Selected as the Energia RSC cosmonaut candidate in April 1984, Kaleri completed basic training and evaluation at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center (1985-1986). In 1987 he was qualified for flight assignment as a test pilot. He has logged 22 flight hours piloting the L-39 training aircraft.

April 1 to December 9, 1987, Kaleri took a training course for a spaceflight aboard the Mir orbital station as a backup crew flight engineer of the Mir-3 long-duration mission. January to April, 1991, he took a training course for a spacceflight aboard the Mir as a backup crew flight engineer of the Mir-9 long-duration mission. October 8, 1991 to February 25, 1992, Kaleri was training as a primary crew flight engineer for the Mir-11 long-duration mission.

March 17 to August 10, 1992, he participated in a 145-day flight aboard the Soyuz-TM transport vehicle and the Mir orbital station. The program included an eight-day joint flight with German cosmonaut Klaus-Dietrich Flade (Mir-12 Program) and a twelve-day joint flight with French cosmonaut Michel Tognini (Antares program). Kaleri performed two space walks.

August 17, 1996 to March 2, 1997, Kaleri participated in a 197-day flight aboard the Soyuz-TM transport vehicle and the Mir orbital station as the Mir-22 mission flight engineer. The program included joint flights with NASA-2, 3 and 4 astronauts, a French astronaut and a German astronaut.

April 4 to June 16, 2000, Alexander Kaleri performed his third spaceflight aboard the Soyuz-TM-30 transport vehicle and the Mir orbital station as the Mir-28 mission flight engineer.

On his fourth spaceflight, October 18, 2003 to April 29, 2004, Kaleri served as Flight Engineer aboard the International Space Station. Mission duration was 194 days, 18 hours and 35 minutes, and included one EVA of 3 hours and 55 minute duration.

Alexander Kaleri has logged 610 days in space and 5 EVAs.

  • Mir The Mir space station was the last remnant of the once mighty Soviet space programme. It was built to last only five years, and was to have been composed of modules launched by Proton and Buran/Energia launch vehicles. These modules were derived from those originally designed by Chelomei in the 1960's for the Almaz military station programme. As the Soviet Union collapsed Mir stayed in orbit, but the final modules were years late and could only be completed with American financial assistance. Kept flying over a decade beyond its rated life, Mir proved a source of pride to the Russian people and proved the ability of their cosmonauts and engineers to improvise and keep operations going despite all manner of challenges and mishaps.

The cosmonauts dismantled an experimental lightweight solar battery from the outer surface of the SO docking compartment. The last activity was the panorama-inspection, making images of the outside of the complex to enable specialist to analyse the effects of ageing of the material. The hatch was closed on what might have been the last spacewalk on Mir at 15:36 GMT.
