Apollo-Soyuz Toasting in Space

American astronauts Thomas P. Stafford, ASTP crew commander, and Donald "Deke" Slayton visit the Soviet Soyuz spacecraft after the two nations's vehicles join in a historic rendezvous. In a symbol of comraderie with their Soviet crewmates, they hold tubes of borscht (beet soup) over which vodka labels have been pasted.
