Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1966
Scope and Contents:
The AS-206 launch was originally planned as an unmanned Saturn IB/LM test flight. Following the AS-204/Apollo 1 accident, these tests were performed during the AS-501/Apollo 4 and AS-204/Apollo 5 missions so that AS-206 was never launched. The SA-206 (Saturn IB) launch vehicle was eventually used to launch the Skylab 2 mission in 1973.

Scope and Contents:
AS-506/Apollo 11 (Apollo mission G) was the first lunar landing mission planned in the Apollo program. Following launch on July 16, 1969, the three-man crew (Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr) traveled to the moon and established lunar orbit. On July 20, 1969, Armstrong and Aldrin descended to the lunar surface in the Sea of Tranquility to become the first humans to set foot on the moon. While on the surface they gathered 21 kg of rock and soil samples, activated the Early Apollo Scientific Experiments Package (EASEP, see also subseries III.D.3.e.2.), and took numerous photographs. Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command module and conducted a series of orbital experiments. Armstrong and Aldrin remained on the surface for just over 21 hours before lifting off to rendezvous with Collins in orbit. The three men returned safely to earth on July 24.

Date:
1969-1970
Scope and Contents:
AS-507/Apollo 12 (Apollo mission H-1) was the second lunar landing mission planned in the Apollo program. Launched on 14 November 1969, the three-man crew (Charles Conrad, Jr, Richard F. Gordon, and Alan L. Bean) followed a mission plan similar to that of Apollo 11, although extra emphasis was placed on insuring spacecraft systems operations following a lightning strike on the vehicle during the launch from Kennedy Space Center. On 19 November 1969, Conrad and Bean descended to the lunar surface in the Ocean of Storms, achieving a precision landing 535 feet from Surveyor III, which had landed 2½ years earlier. The astronauts conducted two extravehicular activities (EVAs) on the lunar surface, totaling nearly eight hours outside of the LM, during which they activated the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP, see also subseries III.D.3.e.2.), collected 34kg of lunar surface samples, and retrieved parts from the nearby Surveyor III spacecraft (one landing leg of the Surveyor spacecraft is now in the collection of the National Air and Space Museum). Gordon remained in lunar orbit in the command module and conducted a series of orbital experiments. Conrad and Bean remained on the surface for just over 31 hours before lifting off to rendezvous with Gordon in orbit. The three men returned safely to earth on 24 November.

Scope and Contents:
AS-508/Apollo 13 (Apollo mission H-2) was the third lunar landing mission planned in the Apollo program. Launched on 11 April 1970, the three-man crew (James A. Lovell Jr., John L. Swigert Jr., and Fred W. Haise) were to follow a mission plan similar to those of Apollo 11 and 12, with Lovell and Haise landing in the Fra Mauro region of the moon. However, on 13 April 1970, with the spacecraft on its way to the moon some 56 hours after launch, a cryogenic oxygen tank in the service module exploded causing a loss of power, depleting the supply of breathing oxygen, and placing the crew in jeopardy. The lunar landing was aborted and sole aim of the mission became the safe return of the three astronauts. With the assistance of ground controllers the crew utilized the lunar module as a life boat until 17 April, when the three men returned safely to earth.

Apollo Follow-On Programs

Date:
1961-1971
Arrangement:
As originally planned the Apollo Program was an initial reconnaissance of the lunar surface to be followed by more intensive exploration of the moon and experimentation in lunar and Earth orbit. This second phase was to use the Apollo spacecraft system as its basis, with added capability provided by additional vehicles and technology. NASA initiated a series of studies in 1962 examining various aspects of the Apollo follow-on exploration/experimentation regime to be instituted in the late-1960s/early-1970s time frame. By late 1964 the various studies had been organized as the Apollo Extension System (AES).

AES still envisioned a combination of lunar surface, lunar orbit, and earth orbit missions lasting up to 120 days (six months). Geared toward utilizing Apollo-era hardware as much as possible, it examined the possibilities of using spent Saturn stages as orbital workshops (OWS) or lunar surface bases. In August 1965 AES was placed under the control of the Saturn/Apollo Applications Office and a month later was renamed the Apollo Applications Program (AAP).

Over the next several years AAP was progressively reduced in response to budget cuts. The lunar surface missions, as immediate follow-on to the Apollo landings, were the first missions to be cut. The earth orbital missions (OWS) were also pared back. In mid-1969 NASA inherited the food/diet and spacesuit contracts and the astronauts from the Defense Department's cancelled Manned Orbital Laboratory (MOL) program. Despite this addition, in July 1969 AAP was cut to a single OWS launch and three manned missions. In February 1970 the AAP program was renamed Skylab.

The material in this subseries relates to NASA studies conducted under AAP and its predecessors, both as an organized program and as separately-funded study contracts. Materials relating to early development work on Skylab systems and operations as well as materials relating to Skylab as named, are included with materials on earth orbital projects as subseries III.D.4.g. (Earth Orbital Program Studies/Skylab). For documents relating to NASA's post-Apollo programs, including the Manned Orbital Research Laboratory (MORL) and space station programs, see subseries III.D.5. (Space Station Programs). For documents relating to NASA's planned manned interplanetary program, including studies involving the use of Apollo and Saturn hardware for interplanetary missions, see subseries III.D.6. (Manned Interplanetary Concepts) The materials in this subseries are grouped into subseries by topic. Unless otherwise noted, documents are arranged chronologically by study within each subseries.
