Long Description:
Gubarev graduated from the Soviet Naval Aviation School in 1952 and went on to serve with the Soviet Air Force. He undertook further studies at the Gagarin Air Force Academy before being accepted into the space programme.

He was originally trained for the Soviet lunar programme and for military Soyuz flights before training for Salyut missions. His next mission, in 1978, was Soyuz 28, the first Interkosmos flight, where he was accompanied by Vladimír Remek from Czechoslovakia.

In 1971, he became backup commander for the ill-fated Soyuz 11 mission, which killed the three-man crew when the craft depressurized in space.

He resigned as a cosmonaut in 1981 and took up an administrative position at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre.

In the 1980s he worked at the 30th Central Scientific Research Institute, Ministry of Defence (Russia).

The sculpture of two cosmonauts: Vladimir Remek and his colleague at the Soyuz 28 station Alexei Gubarev, who took a space flight in 1978. History The idea and location of the sculpture is influenced by the fact that when the final station of the first Prague metro line was completed ), the astronauts carried out their flight with the Soyuz 28. The station, opened to the public in November 1980, was named Cosmonauts in their honor (name until 1990) and the decoration of the station was adapted to the theme of space conquest - a stone mosaic of astronauts in the western subway and park.

Historie
Námet a místo sousoší je ovlivneno skutecností, že když se dokoncovala konecná stanice první trasy pražského metra (dnes stanice Háje), kosmonauti provádeli svuj let lodí Sojuz 28. Stanice, otevrená pro verejnost v listopadu 1980, byla na jejich pocest pojmenována Kosmonautu (název do roku 1990) a tématu dobývání vesmíru byla prizpusobena i výzdoba stanice - kamenná mozaika kosmonautu v západním podchodu a sousoší v parcíku.
