    Description

    The first official official government document signed in space.

    Apollo-Soyuz Signed Document, Known as the "Space Magna Carta." In English and Russian dated July 17, 1975, 12" x 9". This official government document was signed by the two entire crews, including Thomas P. Stafford, D. K. Slayton, Vance Brand, Alexey Leonov, and Valerie Kubasov, and dated July 15-19, 1975. This document was the start of the long road to cooperation in space between the U.S. and Russian programs. This is the watershed document for the beginning of the end of the Cold War and the eventual demise of the old Soviet Union. This document, written in English and Russian, is one of four. It was signed in space as an official document of the event by all the cosmonauts and astronauts.

    "FIRST INTERNATIONAL SPACE DOCKING CERTIFICATE
    This is to certify that at 12 hours 09 minutes Washington time and 19 hours 09 minutes Moscow time, on July 17 1975, flight crews of the United States of America and the Soviet Socialist Republic successfully docked their Apollo and Soyuz spacecraft in Earth orbit. They share the hope that this first international manned space flight will stand in the light of history as a significant advance in the ability of their nations to work together in ways that advance the interests of people everywhere."

    This is the watershed document for the beginning of the end of the Cold War, and the beginning of the eventual demise of the Soviet Union. It indeed resulted in the newest era of space travel. A more important official document of the history of the United States, space history, or history of man would be almost unattainable as most of the documents of this magnitude reside in the National Archives. Fine condition.
