Skylab 4 was one of the most important missions in the early history of human spaceflight exploration. The third and final mission to the Saturn Orbital Workshop is remembered for establishing a new world endurance record of just over 84 days. A record which lasted until the first Soviet Salyut 6 expedition in 1978 and as an American record until 1995, when Norman Thagard returned from the Russian Mir space station after 115 days. More important than the record was the amount of data gathered from the three month vigil to compliment that obtained by the first two missions.
