50 years ago: Apollo 10 takes an unplanned spin above the lunar surface – and sh!t gets sweary


"tested lunar module"

To test the LM would require it to land on the moon and (the ascent stage) to take off again after while seeing how the LM dealt with the heat imbalance (one side was in full sun).

Both LM landing and takeoff remained untested, Apollo 10 only tested the docking.
