Title: Artist's concept of docked Apollo/Soyuz spacecraft
An artist's concept illustrating a cutaway view of the docked Apollo and 
Soyuz spacecraft in Earth orbit. This scene depicts the moment the two 
international crews meet in space for the first time. Two of the three 
American crewmen are in the Docking Module.  The two Soviet crewmen are in 
the Soyuz spacecraft's Orbital Module. The two crew commanders are shaking 
hands through the hatchway. The third American crewman is in the Apollo 
Command Module. During the joint U.S.-USSR Apollo-Soyuz Test Project
mission,  which is scheduled for July 1975, the American and Soviet crews
will visit  one another's spacecraft while the Soyuz and Apollo are docked
for a maximum  period of two days. The artwork is by Davis Meltzer.
