    The main objectives of the mission was to test compatibility of docking hardware and procedures for future space flight missions. The Apollo spacecraft was a modified version of the craft used for the lunar missions. The Soviet Soyuz was the workhouse of the soviet program.
    The mission was a technological success, a well as a diplomatic one between the two super-powers.
