Photo Category: Research and Survey Vessels
This is [i]Akademek Sergey Korolev[/i], a Russian spaceflight tracking vessel that was visiting St. John's, Newfoundland in 1988 when I took this photo.
It was built at Chernomorsky Shipyard, Nikolayev in 1970, completed in 1971.

Much thanks to Pekka Laakso and Morten Jensen for their much appreciated research.

[Actually, I'm not quite sure if it was 1988 when I took this photo...but I tried digging back unsuccessfully online for some info in local papers but until someone else remembers differently, I'll stick with 1988]
