Apollo 5: The First Flight of the Lunar Module NASA

When space enthusiasts think about the Apollo program, they instantly recall the lunar missions which landed a total of a dozen NASA astronauts on the Moon. True fans of the Apollo missions will also readily remember the series of crewed test flights flown in Earth and lunar orbit during the nine months leading up to the historic Apollo 11 mission. Less well known, however, are the unmanned test flights which preceded these missions including the often forgotten Apollo 5 mission – the first unmanned test flight of the Lunar Module (LM) which would make the actual landing on the Moon possible.
