Description

The Apollo Command/Service Module (CSM) launching from Saturn IB for the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP). On the final Apollo flight, a Saturn IB lifted the spacecraft aloft from Launch Complex 39B (LC-39B) at John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Merritt Island, Florida. This spacecraft eventually docked to a Soyuz 19 spacecraft from July 15-17, 1975, as part of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project. ASTP was an experiment in cooperation and mating of different technologies from both the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Soyuz 19 was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome, near present-day Tyuratam, Kazakhstan. The Soviet spacecraft was in orbit for five days. This successful mission led to cooperation on other projects including the International Space Station (ISS).
