Title: Two ASTP prime crews atop mock-ups at JSC to symbolize historic docking
Description:
The two prime crews of the joint U.S.-USSR Apollo Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) 
sit atop ASTP mock-ups at JSC to symbolize their historic docking in Earth 
orbit mission schedules for summer of 1975. They are, left to right, 
Astronaut Donald K. Slayton, docking module pilot of the American crew; 
Astronaut Vance D. Brand, command module pilot of the American Crew; 
Astronaut Thomas P. Stafford, commander of the American crew; Cosmonaut 
Valeriy N. Kubasov, engineer of the Soviet crew; and Cosmonaut Aleksey A. 
Leonov, commander of the Soviet crew. The three Americans are seated on a 
mock-up of a Docking Module, which is designed to link the Apollo and Soyuz 
spacecraft. The two Soviets are atop a mock-up of a Soyuz spacecraft
orbital  module. Leonov and Kubasov were among a group of cosmonauts and
engineers who  visited JSC for three weeks of joint crew training.
