Apollo Overview
Artist concept of deployment of the Lunar Module Adapter panels

Artist concept illustrating the deployment of the Spacecraft Lunar Module Adapter panels as the Command/Service Module separates from the Lunar Module Saturn S-IVB stage. The Command/Service Module makes a turnaround, and the Command Module docks nose-to-nose with the Lunar Module. This phase of the mission occurs following translunar injection. After the transposition and docking, the S-IVB stage is jettisoned and the spacecraft continues in a coasting maneuver toward the moon.
