  This is a hand made, model of the Russian Soyuz and the Apollo Spacecraft docking in Space. The Model was built by the Energia Company.

It is an authentic piece
of Russian Space History.

It is an extremely detailed presentation model of the docked Soyuz-19 spacecraft and the Apollo spacecraft. It represents the first International space flight between the USA and the USSR. The docking took place in July of 1975.

 

The final flight of the Apollo program was the first spaceflight in which spacecraft from different nations docked in space. The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP), although only a one-flight program, marked the first international manned space flight. In July 1975, a U.S. Apollo spacecraft carrying a crew of three docked with a Russian Soyuz spacecraft with its crew of two.

   The United States used an Apollo spacecraft while the Russians used a Soyuz spacecraft. The Docking Module was designed jointly by the United States and Soviet Union, and built in the United States. Its purpose was to enable a docking between the dissimilar Soyuz spacecraft and the U.S. Apollo. 

    ASTP negotiations began in 1970, and an agreement was incorporated into the "superpower summit" agreement of 72.

    ASTP was designed primarily for the purpose of testing space-based rescue techniques needed by both the U.S. and U.S.S.R. space programs.

   The Soyuz 19 spacecraft was launched first. The Apollo  was launched about seven hours later.

    The Apollo spacecraft then chased the Soyuz spacecraft to a rendezvous, completing a docking at 12:10 p.m. EDT on July 17, 1975. The Soyuz 19 spacecraft was on its 35th orbit, while the Apollo spacecraft was on its 29th orbit.

    After adjusting pressure between the two ships, the hatches were opened and the crews meet face to face. The two crews conducted joint experiments, shared each other's accommodations and meals and participated in a variety of press conferences and other live television broadcasts.

    The two spacecraft remained docked for two days, then undocked at 8:12 a.m. EDT on July 19. The two spacecraft docked again for practice purposes at 8:34 a.m. EDT and undocked for the last time at 11:27 a.m.

   The Soyuz landed in Russia at 6:48 p.m. EDT on July 21. The Apollo spacecraft remained in space for three additional days, conducting additional experiments. It then slashed down at 5:18 p.m. EDT on July 24.
