    Apollo 1 was the first manned mission of the United States Apollo program.January 27, 1967 Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee were killed in a fire in the Apollo Command Module during a preflight test at Cape Canaveral. They were training for the first crewed Apollo flight, an Earth orbiting mission scheduled to be launched on 21 February. They were taking part in a "plugs-out" test, in which the Command Module was mounted on the Saturn 1B. But the Saturn 1B was not fueled.
  • Apollo 4

    Apollo 4
    Apollo 4, was the first unmanned test flight of the Saturn V launch vehicle.The main purpose of this craft was to take the the Apollo Command and Service Module (CSM) into Earth orbit and to test all aspects of the Saturn V launch vehicle.
  • Apollo 5

    Apollo 5
    Apollo 5, was the first unmanned flight of the Apollo Lunar Module, which would later carry astronauts to the lunar surface. Mission objectives were to verify the ascent and descent stages, the propulsion systems, and the restart operations, and to evaluate the spacecraft structure, LM staging, 2nd stage (S-IVB) and instrument unit (Iu) orbital performance.
  • Apollo 6

    Apollo 6
    Apollo 6 was the second A type mission of the United States Apollo program, an unmanned test of the Saturn V launch vehicle. It was also the final unmanned Apollo test mission.
  • Apollo 7

    Apollo 7
    163 Earth orbits. First manned CSM operations in lunar landing program. First live TV from manned spacecraft. It was the first mission in the United States' Apollo program to carry a crew into space.
  • Apollo 8

    Apollo 8
    first manned spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, reach the Earth's Moon, orbit it and return safely to Earth.
  • Apollo 9

    Apollo 9
    IT was the third manned mission in the United States Apollo space program and the first flight of the Command/Service Module with the Lunar Module.
  • Apollo 10

    Apollo 10
    Apollo 10 was the fourth manned mission in the United States Apollo space program and the second to orbit the Moon.First manned CSM/LM operations in cislunar and lunar environment; simulation of first lunar landing profile. In lunar orbit 61.6 hours, with 31 orbits. LM taken to within 15,243 m (50,000 ft) of lunar surface. First live color TV from space. LM ascent stage jettisoned in orbit.
  • Apollo 11

    Apollo 11
    Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20,1969 at 20:18 UTC.
  • Apollo 12

    Apollo 12
    Apollo 12 was the sixth manned flight in the United States Apollo program and the second to land on the Moon. Mission commander Charles Pete Conrad and Lunar Module Pilot Alan L. Bean performed just over one day and seven hours of lunar surface activity while Command Module Pilot Richard F. Gordon remained in lunar orbit.
  • Apollo 13

    Apollo 13
    Apollo 13 was the seventh manned mission in the Apollo space program and the third intended to land on the Moon. Mission aborted after rupture of service module oxygen tank. Classed as "successful failure" because of experience in rescuing crew. Spent upper stage successfully impacted on the Moon.
  • Apollo 14

    Apollo 14
    Apollo 14 was the eighth manned mission in the United States Apollo program.It was the last of the "H missions," targeted landings with two-day stays on the Moon with two lunar EVAs, or moonwalks.
  • Apollo 15

    Apollo 15
    Apollo 15 was the ninth manned mission in the United States' Apollo program, the fourth to land on the Moon, and the eighth successful manned mission.First to carry orbital sensors in service module of CSM. ALSEP deployed.
  • Apollo 16

    Apollo 16
    Apollo 16 was the tenth manned mission in the United States Apollo space program, the fifth and penultimate to land on the Moon and the first to land in the lunar highlands.The first study of highlands area. Selected surface experiments were deployed, ultraviolet camera/spectrograph was used for first time on the Moon, and the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) was used for the second time.
  • Apollo 17

    Apollo 17
    Apollo 17 was the final mission of NASA's Apollo program. Launched at 12:33 a.m. There were three EVAs of 22 hours, and 4 minutes. Evans performed trans-Earth EVA lasting 1 hour and 6 minutes. Harrison H. Schmitt became the first scientist-astronaut to land ont he Moon. The sixth automated research station was set up on the Moon. The Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) total traverse time was 30.5 km (19 miles). Lunar surface stay time, 75 hours, in lunar orbit
