 Apollo-Soyuz Test Project - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) took place in the second half of July 1975 and entailed the docking of the American Apollo 18 space craft with the Soviet Soyuz 19 space craft.
The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project was the first joint flight of the US and Soviet space programs.
ASTP was in part inspired by the 1968 film Marooned, in which a stranded US Apollo crew is rescued by a Soviet spacecraft.

 The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project
The Soyuz 19 spacecraft was on its 35th orbit, while the Apollo spacecraft was on its 29th orbit.
ASTP was designed primarily for the purpose of establishing and testing space-based rescue techniques needed by both the U.S. and U.S.S.R. manned space flight programs.
Soyuz 19 landed in Russia at 6:48 p.m.

Apollo Commander, Astronaut Thomas P. Stafford (in foreground) and Soyuz Commander, Cosmonaut Alexei A. Leonov make their historic handshake in space during the joint Russian/American docking mission known as the ASTP, or Apollo Soyuz Test Project.
The ASTP Soyuz was known as the 7K-M and was equipped with new solar panels and modified controls.
ASTP had its origins in October 1970 when representatives from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the USSR Academy of Sciences met in Moscow to discuss the possibility of a joint piloted space mission.

Apollo-Soyuz was the first joint mission between the United States and Soviet Union and made history on July 17, 1975 when the Soyuz and Apollo spacecraft docked allowing the crews to sample each other’s spacecraft.
All major ASTP objectives were accomplished and included: testing a compatible rendezvous system in orbit; testing of androgynous docking assemblies; verifying techniques for crew transfers; and gaining experience in the conduct of joint international flights.
He was an instructor in flight test training and specialized academic subjects-establishing basic textbooks and directing the writing of flight test manuals for use by the staff and students.

 Apollo-Soyuz Test Project
The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) was the first human spaceflight mission managed jointly by two nations.
Several modifications were made for the Apollo-Soyuz mission, however, including the addition of propellants for the reaction control system, heaters for temperature control, and extra equipment needed to operate the Docking Module.
It was designed to test the compatibility of rendezvous and docking systems for American and Soviet spacecraft in order to open the way for future joint human flights.

 Reflections on the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project

Despite the historical signifigance of the mission, I still had a whole lot of trouble isolating certain points of data (for the life of me, I couldn't figure out what color the SPS nozzle was supposed to be!).
I first got this model over three years ago, and I built it with my modeling experience that wasn't quite as developed as it is now.

To fill the void between Apollo 17 (Dec. '72), and the first flights of the Space Shuttle (April, '81) two projects were carried out to insure a US presence in space: the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project ("ASTP"), and Skylab.
The entire Apollo project was meant to have had ten visits to the lunar surface, but after Apollo 17, the other missions were scrubbed.
With the cancellation of the remaining Apollo lunar missions, a much-improved design resulted because a surplus Saturn V was now available to lift the space station to orbit.
