Apollo spacecraft. Artwork of one of the Apollo spacecrafts used to land men on the Moon. The left half, called the command and service module (CSM), carried fuel, rocket engines and the command module pilot, who remained in orbit during a landing. The right half, the lunar module, separated from the CSM to land on the Moon. The bottom half of the lunar module remained on the Moon after completion of the mission and the top part returned to lunar orbit to dock with the CSM. Only the central, v-shaped part of the craft - the command module - returned to Earth. The last Apollo spacecraft to land on the Moon was Apollo 17 in 1972.
