December 27, 1987

Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Romanenko, who has spent a record 324 days in space, will return to Earth from the space station Mir on Tuesday with his crew mate Alexander Alexandrov, a Soviet space official said. Alexei Leonov, deputy chief of the cosmonaut training center, said that Romanenko, 43, is not expected to take part in another space mission for the next year. Three other cosmonauts--Vladimir Titov, Musa Manarov and Anatoly Levchenko--docked their Soyuz spacecraft with Mir last week. Levchenko, a test pilot, will return to Earth with the other two.
