Caption: Moon landing. Illustration of the Apollo Lunar Module (LM, centre) separating from the Command/Service Module (CSM, upper right) for its descent to the lunar surface. Each Apollo mission was crewed by three astronauts, sitting in the Command Module (conical section of the CSM). Two astronauts used the LM to descend to the Moon and return to the CSM, which was piloted by the third astronaut. The Command Module was then used to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere, with the other sections being jettisoned.
