Description

An artist's rendering of the Apollo–Soyuz Test Project (ASTP). The Apollo crew consisted of Docking Module Pilot Deke Slayton (1924-1993) (1924-1993), Mission Commander Thomas Stafford (1930-), and Command/Service Module Pilot Vance de. Brand. The Soyuz crew consisted of Commander Alexey Leonov (1934-), Flight Engineer Valeri Nikolayevich Kubasov (1935-2014). Both spacecraft launched on July 15, 1975, within hours of each other, with the first being the Soyuz 19 from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and the Apollo from Launch Pad 39B at John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Merritt Island, Florida. The two spacecraft docked on July 17 and undocked on July 19, with crews conducting joint science experiments. They also spent time giving tours of each other's spacecraft to television audiences and formal and informal gift exchanges. Afterward, the undocking the Soyuz spent an additional day carrying out experiments and landed on July 21. The Apollo crew also stayed in orbit and conducted space science and Earth observation landing in the Pacific Ocean on July 24.
