Caption

Speeded up sequence showing a close approach to Skylab by mission SL-2. Towards the end of the clip we pull back to glimpse the rest of the Earth passing beneath. Brilliant white clouds and deep blue oceans can be seen. Skylab was the first space station the United States launched into orbit. The 75 metric ton station was in Earth orbit from 1973 to 1979, and it was visited by crews three times in 1973 and 1974. It included a laboratory for studying the effects of microgravity and a solar observatory.
