El-Baz, Farouk.Alternative names
The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP), from July 15, 1975 through July 24, 1975, was an historical mission because it was the first joint space exploration between the United States and the Soviet Union. The United States three-man Apollo spacecraft docked with a Soviet Union two-man Soyuz spacecraft while in Earth orbit. While docked the crews exchanged goodwill messages and gifts and carried out a number of joint activities. The Earth Observation and Photography Experiment (EOPE) was among the experiments carried out during the mission. EOPE used trained observers to identify, describe and photograph surface features of scientific interest in support of ongoing research in geology, oceanography, hydrology, meteorology, desert studies and environmental science.
