Lot 23: ASTP Mission Events Card Signed by Stafford & Bobko

This original Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Mission Facts and Mission Events card has been signed by astronauts Tom Stafford and Karol "Bo" Bobko. In addition to their autographs, both astronauts have noted their mission assignments, "ASTP Cdr." and "ASTP CapCom," respectively.

The 5" x 7" card contains the mission insignia, mission schedule and mission facts as reported by the NASA-JSC-DSAD Mission Planning and Analysis Division as of May 23, 1975.

ASTP was the first joint U.S.-Soviet space flight. The two spacecraft launched within hours of each other on July 15, 1975 and docked together in orbit two days later, marking the first meeting of international astronaut crews above the Earth. This mission marked the end of the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union that began in 1955. ASTP was the final flight of an Apollo spacecraft and the last manned U.S. mission until the first space shuttle flight in April 1981.

The card is displayed in a presentation with a contemporary mission patch and a photo of the Saturn 1B launching the U.S. crew into orbit. The presentation has been matted and framed using archival methods and measures approximately 12" x 21.25". A certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles accompanies this lot.
