The official name of this flight was :
- ASTP (Apollo-Soyuz Test Project) in the USA
- EPAS (Экспериментальный полёт «Аполлон» — «Союз») in the USSR.

Interesting to remember that EPAS was the name given to a perfume especially formulated to commemorate the flight by Revlon. Only a very limited number of bottles were produced though I believe it saw daylight later under the brand name Charlie.
Light travels faster than sound, which is why some people appear bright until they speak.

Should this thread be re-titled?

My favorite memory about ASTP is that there were three languages spoken by the two crews. Russian, English, and Oklahomsky (Stafford's Russian with a drawl).

I ´ve heard never, that he took part in the Apollo-Soyuz training. What was his job during this training?
