1971: The Soviet spacecraft Soyuz 10 attempts to dock with Salyut 1, the first space station. However, the attempt was unsuccessful and the crew returned to Earth without having entered the station. The crew of Soyuz 11 would later successfully dock with the space station and stay on board for 23 days before leaving.
