Second Manned Skylab Mission
Skylab 3 took up previous Skylab crew’s mantle of aiming to achieve all pre-mission goals and went on to set new standards for a crew working in space. Despite suffering from mild bouts of space adaptation sickness early in the flight, the crew went on to meet and surpass their pre-flight objectives, often asking ground control for more work. The Skylab 3 trio became the first crew to re-occupy the workshop setting a trend which continues to this day extending the operational life of a space station.
