Guess Who This Is

All Space Missions

Apollo 1  (1967)

(AS-204). Planned as a low-orbit mission February 21, 1967, but a cabin fire in a rehearsal test on January 27 killed the three astronauts.

Apollo 10  (1969)

Dress rehearsal for first lunar landing; flew LM down to 50,000 feet (15 km) from lunar surface.

Apollo 11  (1969)

First manned landing, in Sea of Tranquility.

Apollo 12  (1969)

Second landing, in Ocean of Storms near Surveyor 3.

Apollo 13  (1970)

Third landing attempt aborted near the Moon, due to SM failure. Crew used LM as "life boat" to return to Earth.

Apollo 14  (1971)

Third moon landing, in Fra Mauro.

Apollo 15  (1971)

First Extended LM and LRV rover, landed in Hadley-Apennine.

Apollo 16  (1972)

Landed in Plain of Descartes.

Apollo 17  (1972)

Only Saturn V night launch. Landed in Taurus-Littrow. First geologist on the Moon. Final manned Moon landing.

Apollo 18

(abandoned) Originally planned to land in Schroter's Valley, a river-like channel.

Apollo 7  (1968)

First manned Earth orbital demonstration of Block II CSM, launched on Saturn IB. First live television publicly broadcast from a manned mission.

Apollo 8  (1968)

First manned flight to Moon; CSM made 10 lunar orbits in 20 hours.

Apollo 9  (1969)

First manned flight of CSM and LM in Earth orbit; demonstrated Portable Life Support System to be used on the lunar surface.

Gemini 10  (1966)

First use of the Agena Target Vehicle's propulsion systems. The spacecraft also rendezvoused with the Agena Target Vehicle from Gemini 8. Collins had 49 minutes of EVA standing in the hatch and 39 minutes of EVA to retrieve experiments from the Agena. 43 orbits completed.

Gemini 11  (1966)

Gemini record altitude with apogee of 739.2 nautical miles reached using the Agena Target Vehicle propulsion system after first orbit rendezvous and docking. Gordon made a 33-minute EVA and two-hour standup EVA. 44 orbits.

Gemini 12  (1966)

Final Gemini flight. Rendezvoused and docked manually with its target Agena and kept station with it during EVA. Aldrin set an EVA record of 5 hours and 30 minutes for one space walk and two stand-up exercises, and demonstrated solutions to previous EVA problems. 59 orbits completed

Gemini 3  (1965)

First manned Gemini flight, three orbits.

Gemini 4  (1965)

Included first extravehicular activity (EVA) by an American. White's "space walk" was a 22-minute EVA exercise.

Gemini 5  (1965)

First week-long flight. First use of fuel cells for electrical power. Evaluated guidance and navigation system for future rendezvous missions. Completed 120 orbits.

Gemini 6  (1965)

First space rendezvous accomplished with Gemini 7, station-keeping for over five hours at distances from 1 to 300 ft.

Gemini 7  (1965)

When the original Gemini 6 mission was scrubbed because its Agena target for rendezvous and docking failed, Gemini 7 was used for the rendezvous instead. Primary objective was to determine whether humans could live in space for 14 days.

Gemini 8  (1966)

Accomplished first docking with another space vehicle, an unmanned Agena Target Vehicle. While docked, a Gemini spacecraft thruster malfunction caused near-fatal tumbling of the craft, which, after undocking, Armstrong was able to overcome; the crew effected the first emergency landing of a manned U.S. space mission.

Gemini 9A  (1966)

Rescheduled from May to rendezvous and dock with an Augmented Target Docking Adapter (ATDA) after the original Agena Target Vehicle failed to orbit. The ATDA shroud did not completely separate, making docking impossible. Three different types of rendezvous, two hours of EVA, and 44 orbits were completed.

Mercury-Atlas 6  (1962)

Call sign: Friendship 7. 3 orbits. First American in orbit. Retropack retained during re-entry Recovered by destroyer USS Noa.

Mercury-Atlas 7  (1962)

Call sign: Aurora 7. 3 orbits. Carpenter replaced Deke Slayton. Recovered by destroyer USS Farragut.

Mercury-Atlas 8  (1962)

Call sign: Sigma 7. 6 orbits. The flight closest to plan. Carried out maneuvering tests. Recovered by carrier USS Kearsarge.

Mercury-Atlas 9  (1963)

Call sign: Faith 7. 22 orbits. First American in space for over a day. Last American solo mission. Recovered by USS Kearsarge.

Mercury-Redstone 3  (1961)

Call sign: Freedom 7. Suborbital test. First American in space. Recovered by carrier USS Lake Champlain.

Mercury-Redstone 4  (1961)

Call sign: Liberty Bell 7. Suborbital test. Spacecraft sank during recovery when hatch unexpectedly blew off. Recovered by carrier USS Randolph.
