July 1969. Boosted aloft into the Florida skies by the immense Saturn V rocket, the Apollo 11 spacecraft carried men to the surface of a celestial body for the very first time. There have been many spacecraft built since the conclusion of the Apollo program, the Space Shuttle included. However, they merely creep above the atmosphere, flying only a scant few hundred kilometers above the Earth's surface. To this day, Apollo remains the world's first and only true spaceship. It journeyed farther, traveled faster and was more expensive than anything before or since.
