Does anyone recall the previous ones? Apollo 10 was Charlie Brown/Snoopy . Does anyone know what the Apollo One names were? That was the ship that burned on the launch pad, and killed Grissom, White, and Chaffee.

yeah Iīv seen it, 2003. even before my time here
I would think that if you have not received an answer in 9 years, no one knows or cares.

all I could find myself is the crew Grissom, White, and Chaffee called their module Apollo 1 and that was it.

Tom answered the question on July 9, 2003 but, he was off by 1 mission. The Command and Lunar Module names for Apollo 9 were Gumdrop and Spider, respectively.

There were no other "names" given to the prior missions other than "generic" ones:

Quote:
Mission name ----- Apollo 1
Command Module---CM-012
Service Module---SM-012


Due to the tragic accident which killed Virgil "Gus" Grissom, Edward H. White and Roger B. Chaffee, the mission name of Apollo 1 was officially retired.

However, prior to Apollo 1, there were 3 test flights of the Saturn 1-B rocket, known as AS-201, 202, 203 that were done as part of the Apollo program. (Apollo 1 was also known as AS-204.)


There were no flights designated as Apollo 2 or Apollo 3 and the "official" designation of numbers following Apollo, began with Apollo 4.

Mission name------Apollo 4
Command Module---CM-017
Service Module---SM-017
Lunar Module---LTA-10R (dummy)

Mission name------Apollo 5
Lunar Module---LM-1

Mission name-----Apollo 6
Command Module---CM-020
Service Module---SM-014
Lunar Module---LTA-2R (dummy)

Mission name-----Apollo 7
Command Module---CM-101
Service Module---SM-101

Mission name-----Apollo 8
Command Module---CM-103
Service Module---SM-103
Lunar Module---
Ballast: LM Test Article B
