    Background: The three United States astronauts and the two Soviet cosmonauts, who will link up in space during the summer of next year, have been learning about each other's equipment at the Space Centre in Houston, United States.

    A United States 'Apollo' spacecraft will dock for 48 hours with a Soviet 'Soyuz' spaceship. Apart from learning about each other's spacecraft, the Soviet and American space crews have been learning each other's language. The leaders of the Soviet and American crews -- Alexei Leonov and Neil Stafford -- showed at a recent press conference how well they were progressing. Stafford spoke first and then Leonov gave this translation of his words.
