Apollo 5 Launches 50 Years Ago Today (22 Jan. 1968) — The Apollo 5 (LM-1/Saturn 204) unmanned space mission was launched from the Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 37 at 5:48:09 p.m. (EST), Jan. 22, 1968. The Lunar Module-1 payload was boosted into Earth orbit by a launch vehicle composed of a Saturn IB first stage and a Saturn S-IVB second stage. The Apollo lunar module’s first flight test was called a complete success. Ascent and descent propulsion systems and the ability to abort a lunar landing and return to orbit were demonstrated.
