Dennis Tito was the first Spaceflight Participant (or "space tourist") to fly to the ISS.
This Translational Hand Controller Commutator, or KRUD, was installed on the left side of the Soyuz TM-32 reentry module crew compartment.
It was used to move the craft up, down, forward, back, left and right through the use of both its joystick and switch. Together with the KRUO — or Rotational Hand Controller Commutator — the Soyuz could be piloted to a docking with the International Space Station and through its reentry into the atmosphere.
