Abstract : In this new space expedition, the main task assigned to the flight was the problem of studying the influence of the various factors of cosmic flight on the human organism, both as regards prolonged staying in orbit, and as to comparing the effects of these factors on the organisms of man and woman. In addition to these tasks, which require new, complex medical biological research work, the proving and improvement of the systems of manned space vehicles, especially under conditions of group flying, was continued. The new flight, through its characteristics, organization, duration and objectives, can be considered as a stage of the greatest importance in the progress of man's penetration into cosmic space.
