Return to Kansas Cosmosphere

ASTP

The Cosmosphere has an Apollo-Soyuz Test Project display. According to the Field Guide, the Apollo command module is JSC#2, a 1-G trainer. Cosmosphere president Jim Remar tells me that the service module is a replica fabricated by the Cosmosphere's SpaceWorks division. There's no indication as to the heritage of the Soyuz. The spacecraft are joined by a low-fidelity docking module. Refer to a higher-fidelity docking module mockup at Stafford Air & Space for additional pictures and additional information, or the ASTP display at the National Air & Space Museum for a look at the flight's backup DM.

The Cosmosphere's display is exceptionally difficult to photograph: It's in a relatively narrow hallway which is dimly lit but is lit by very bright spot lighting. Additionally, there's a support column right down the middle of the docking module.
