Apollo-Soyuz ASTP: Brief Encounter.

Apollo-Soyuz ASTP: Snappy Détente

1975. Two confronted countries (the crews became good friends) shaking hands across two wonderful machines. Apollo spacecraft last and Deke Slayton making his long overdue space flight. To some just a stunt or mere diplomacy in space, but not to me. It was an utterly interesting mission.

By the way, to the Soviets it was “Soyuz-Apollo”; the classic “I’m first” syndrome.

Artist: Davis Paul Meltzer.
