The Apollo Soyuz Test Project Saturn IB launch vehicle thundered away
from KSC's launch Complex 39B at 3:50 p.m. Aboard the Apollo Command Module
were ASTP Astronauts Thomas Stafford, Vance Brand and Donald Slayton.
The astronauts will rendezvous and dock with a Soyuz spacecraft, launched
this morning from the Baikonur launch facility in the Soviet Union, carrying
Soviet cosmonauts Aleksey Leonov and Valerly Kubasov.
