Description

Washington: Pres. Nixon and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev agreed at the Moscow summit 5/24 to send American and Soviet spacemen on a historic joint earth orbital flight in 1975. Preliminary plans calls for a three-man Apollo spacecraft and a three-man Soviet space station to dock together and circle the earth for about two days. Here, Dr. James Fletcher, NASA administrator, holds up a model of an airlock which would permit the transfer of crews between the two ships.
