The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) entailed the docking of an American Apollo spacecraft with a Soviet Soyuz spacecraft. Launched on July 15, 1975, it was the last Apollo mission, the first joint U.S./Soviet spaceflight and the last manned U.S. space mission until the first Space Shuttle flight in April 1981. The crew for the Apollo mission were Commander Thomas Stafford command module pilot Vance D. Brand and docking module pilot Donald "Deke" Slayton. The Soyuz crew were commander Alexei Leonov and flight engineer Valeri Kubasov.
The mission included joint and separate scientific experiments and provided useful engineering experience for future joint U.S./Russian space flights such as the Shuttle-Mir Program and the International Space Station. The ASTP mission ended successfully on July 24, 1975 when the Apollo command module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean after nine days in space.
The Dragon Wings Space Collection includes high quality, fully assembled, die-cast models of spacecraft and rockets. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail using original specifications. They are constructed with diecast metal and plastic components.
