Apollo 8 Command & Service Module (CSM)
Apollo 8 holds an unrepeatable record it was the first human spaceflight to leave the Earth's orbit. This occurred on December 21 1968, when a Saturn V SA-503 rocket launched it into space from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It reached the far side of the Moon, a destination that took three days to reach. Its place in history doesn't stop here, for it was also the first manned spacecraft to return to Earth from the Moon, after orbiting the Moon ten times! The enormous success of NASA's Apollo 8 mission paved the way for Apollo 11, where the USA achieved the goal of first landing man on the Moon.
