Title -  Apollo 9 "Spider” Prior to Docking


Description -  Lunar Module 'Spider', attached to the Saturn IVB stage in earth orbit prior to docking with Apollo 9's Command/Service.  The photo was taken following separation of the CSM from the S-IVB stage, and the Spacecraft Lunar Module Adapter (SLA) panels have already been jettisoned.  Following a March 3, 1969 launch, Apollo 9 crew of James McDivitt, Dave Scott, and Rusty Schweickart spent 10 days testing the Lunar Module and Command and Service Modules in Earth orbit.  Apollo 9 was the first mission to dock the CSM with the LEM, and the astronauts paved the way for subsequent flights to the moon with the CSM and the LEM.
