Travel aboard the American and U.S.S.R. spacecrafts during their historic first meeting in space! Children join Kevin and Lucy as they are suddenly transported from the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum into outer space, becoming U.S.S.R. cosmonaut Alexei Leonov and American astronaut Thomas Stafford. Lucy and Kevin come face-to-face with each other, as the hatches between the two spacecrafts open and the two friends shake hands, successfully completing the Apollo-Soyuz Mission. In Handshake in Space: The Apollo-Soyuz Test, children learn how a simple handshake between astronauts of two rival countries can offer hope that countries can set their differences aside and work together toward a common goal.
