1/72 NASA Apollo 8 Command Service Module - Die Cast
Item #: MODEL-APOLLO8CSM
1/72 NASA Apollo 8 Command Service Module - Die Cast 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.
