Technicians working under what is presumed to be a Command Module or a Service Module to prepare it for mating during Project Apollo at John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Merritt Island, Florida. The Apollo program was the third U.S. manned spaceflight program operated by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Project Apollo ran from 1961 to 1972 and was dedicated to President John F. Kennedy's goal of landing a man on the Moon. The program achieved its goal, and also serves as the first and only manned mission beyond low Earth orbit.
