A series of films about important pages of the life of Soviet and Russian cosmonauts. Alexander Ivanovich Laveikin is the first cosmonaut who was found to have abnormalities in the work of the heart, which later became considered the norm, which allowed Laveikin to return to service. During the flight, together with Yuri Romanenko, the cosmonauts used the Glazar telescope for the first time to photograph black holes.
