On 11th October 1968, just 15 months from President Kennedy’s deadline for a moon landing, NASA launched its first Apollo crew into space.

Apollo 7’s Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walter Cunningham spent 11 days in low Earth orbit, thoroughly testing the Apollo Command and Service Module’s systems.

The crew also won an Emmy for the first live television broadcasts from an American spacecraft.
