|The Apollo Spacecract|
Apollo was a three-part spacecraft:
|the command module (CM), the crew's quarters and flight control section;|
|the service module (SM) for the propulsion and spacecraft support systems (when together, the two modules are called CSM); and the|
|lunar module (LM), to take two of the crew to the lunar surface, support them on the Moon, and return them to the CSM in lunar orbit.|
The flight mode, lunar orbit rendezvous, was selected in 1962. The boosters for the program were the Saturn IB for Earth orbit flights and the Saturn V for lunar flights.
