NASA's Apollo Program consisted of 17 missions in the 1960s and 1970s to send the first humans to the moon. The program used the mighty Saturn V rocket to launch three astronauts on Apollo spacecraft. Later missions included a Lunar Module for moon landings. It was NASA's Apollo 11 mission in 1969 that landed the first astronauts on the moon (Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin) while a third (Michael Collins) remained in orbit. NASA's final Apollo moon mission was Apollo 17 in 1972. Apollo spacecraft also flew astronauts to NASA's Skylab space station, with the final Apollo capsule used in the historic Apollo-Soyuz docking mission with the Soviet Union in 1975.
