Apollo-Soyuz, was a joint mission between NASA and the Soviet space program. The purpose was for NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts to come together and shake hands, to encourage peace between the two nations during the height of the Cold War.

The Apollo-Soyuz-Test-Project (ASTP) in the For All Mankind universe is the only known real-life parallel event that occurs later in the in-show universe than in real life. The real life ASTP occured in 1975, while in-show it takes place in 1983. This also means the universal docking adapter was a piece of technology developed later in the show than in real life, but for political rather than technological reasons.
