Title: View of Commemorative Plaque for ASTP
Description:
A close-up view of the Commemorative Plaque for the Apollo Soyuz Test 
Project (ASTP). Two plaques divided into four quarters each will be flown
on  the ASTP mission. A four-part plaque is completely assembled here. The 
American ASTP crew will carry the four U.S. quarter pieces aboard Apollo;
and  the Soviet ASTP crew will carry the four USSR quarter sections aboard
Soyuz.  The eight quarter pieces will be joined together to form two
complete  commemorative plaques after the two spacecraft rendezvous and
dock in Earth  orbit. One complete plaque then will be returned to Earth by
the astronauts;  the other complete plaque will be brought back by the
cosmonauts. The plaque  is written in both English and Russian.
