commander Aleksei Leonov made these notes on his flight manual for
the historic link-up in space. Beside the printed instructions (in
Russian) for the docking maneuvers, he jotted a reminder of some English
words of welcome to Apollo commander Thomas Stafford.
A gift from Apollo commander Thomas P. Stafford, a granite marker outside
the west end of the Museum commemorates the Apollo-Soyuz mission.
The trees behind the marker were planted by the Apollo-Soyuz crews
as a gesture of friendship. A similar grove was planted in Moscow.
