The project Apollo is the most popular and probably the best known spaceflight program until now and included up from Apollo 11 until Apollo 17 totally 6 Moonlanding missions.

This Apollo project has been  already started by US president J.F.Kennedy in 1961, after the notice of Wostok 1 flight of Yuri  Gagarin. with the clear goal of the first humen being landing on Moon.

On 20.July 969 teh first humen, Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon.

For this flights to the Moon , the NASA has to develop a totally new rocket with the SaturnV to make it possible to bring with one rocket the very complex Apollo spaceship, for three astronauts , containing  three separat units (Apollo command Modul, Service Module and Lunar Module), into Orbit, to the surface of the Moon and back to earth.

The spacecraft has been the Saturn V rocket.

The Saturn V rocket has an altitude of 111 meters ánd a launch weight of 2950 mt.

Russia tried to develop as well a similar rocket for their Moon manned flight program, but the new planned rocket for that missions the rocket N-1 failed totally during 4 launch trials.

On the other hand, the russians invested to less money for this missions, had too much different missions planned with their Sojus spaceship, too many responsible persons involved after the much too early death of Sergej Koroljew in 1966. 

So the russians could not focused in the same way as the americans on that manned Moonlanding mission and failed in that field totally until today.

After that fact Russia focused more and more their activities on the different Orbitalstations and is until today very successful with their Sojus program to reach now as the single nation the Orbital station ISS.
