Additional information
In 1983 when Bulgaria was celebrating 1300 years Bulgarian state, the first Bulgarian satellite was launched by means of a Bulgarian rocket. There was no Bulgarian astronaut working in the space at that period so a decision for a second Soviet -Bulgarian flight was taken.
In 1988 the Bulgarian, Alexander Alexandrov, together with two Soviets on the board of "Sauz TM5" flew to the space station "Mir". The project was called "Shipka" as in the same year Bulgaria celebrated 110 years since the heroic battles for Shipka pass took place.
Alexander Alexandrov conducted 56 space experiments in the field of space technologies, space medicine and biology. He is conferred on with the titles of Hero of Soviet Union and Bulgaria respectively.
You can see him in the photo of 2003, together with the rest flight participants, still wearing these two awards (Alexandrov is second from right to left).
