On July 16, 1969, at 9:32 a.m., the gigantic Saturn V was launched from Cape Canaveral, the most significant voyage in human history. The giant Saturn V consisted of three main stages, was 110 meters high and weighed 3,000 tons. It could carry a payload of 50 tons and reached a speed of 11.2 km/second. The 394,000 km journey to the moon took 72 hours. After reaching low Earth orbit, the upper assembly with the Apollo capsule received thrust from the third stage of the launch vehicle to reach flight speed to the Moon. Later, the Apollo assembly detached from the rocket, rotated, and pulled the lunar module out of its protective envelope. Thus coupled together, this unit arrived at the Moon and veered into lunar orbit. After several lunar orbits, the lunar module separated from the command module with astronauts N. Armstrong and E. Aldrin on board separated from the command module in which only astronaut M. Collins remained.
