    Background: ZVYOZDNY, NEAR MOSCOW, USSR/SPACE

    Soviet cosmonauts Anatoly Berezovoy and Valentin Lebedev paid tribute to Yuri Gagarin, one of the Soviet space pioneers, when they laid a wreath at his memorial on December 28. Surrounded by their relatives and friends, the two men spoke of Soviet space-exploration at the ceremony at Zvyozdny, near Moscow. Berezovoy and Lebedev returned from a record-breaking 211 days in space aboard their Soyuz T-7 craft on December 10. They had spent more than six months on the orbiting research station Salyut-7, during which time they were joined by a three-man Soviet-French team who spent a week there conducting experiments. Two months later, another Soyuz team, including the Soviet Union's second woman cosmonaut, Svetlana Savitskya, docked with the Salyut-7. Berezovoy and Lebedev have undergone two weeks of exhaustive medical checks since their return to Earth.
