Apollo and Soyuz spacecrafts dock in space, the hatch between the spacecrafts are opened, and astronauts Thomas Stafford and Deke Slayton shakes hands with cosmonaut Alexey Leonov. As a gesture of friendship, American astronauts speak Russian, while the cosmonauts speak English.
Then, Thomas Stafford is shown assembling two halves of a medallion commemorating the ASTP.
The 1975 docking of the American Apollo and Soviet Soyuz vehicles was the first international space project, and showed that the two space programs could work together.
