Responsible for carrying all three astronauts and the Lunar Module into lunar orbit the Apollo Command module played a vital role in the Apollo 11 landings. The Command Module was 11m high and 3.9m wide and having taken off from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on July 16th delivered it"s passengers to their destination in just four days. On their return to Earth the three astronauts had to spend 21 days in quarantine to ensure they hadn't contracted a "moon disease". Once finally released a parade and state dinner was hosted on the 13th of August to celebrate the mission"s success. In 1961 President John F. Kennedy had committed to seeing a man land safely on the moon within a decade, and thus his promise to the world had been achieved.

Grumman Apollo Lunar Module

Built for NASA by Grumman, the Apollo Lunar Module was first test flown (unmanned) as part of the Apollo 5 mission, launched on January 22, 1968. One of two spacecraft used for the Apollo program, the Lunar Module, along with the the Command/Service Module (CSM), was used to land astronauts on the moon. The module consisted of a rocket-powered ascent stage mounted atop a separately powered descent stage that was equipped with four folding legs that were extended enroute to the moon for the lunar touchdown. The ascent stage incorporated a docking hatch to allow crewmembers to transfer between the Lunar Module and Command Module.
