July 1975. An artist's concept depicting the American and Soviet spacecraft docked in Earth orbit during the July 1975 Apollo-Soyuz Test Project mission. The Apollo Command/Service Module is on the left, the Docking Module is in the center, and the Soyuz spacecraft is on the right. The first docking of spacecraft from two different nations was scheduled for July 17, 1975. The American and Soviet ASTP crewmen planned to visit each other's spacecraft while Apollo and Soyuz are docked for a maximum period of two days. The docking system on the Docking Module and the docking system on the Soyuz Orbital Module are designed to interface with each other. The painting is by artist Paul Fjeld.
