Launched from Cape Kennedy October 11, 1968, Apollo VII had simply stated missions: demonstrate the capability of spacecraft, support facilities, and their crews to launch, fly, rendezvous, and return safely. Above is a view of the “angry alligator” of the ejected Saturn rocket, which was used to emulate docking with the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM).
