      A spacecraft would carry three astronauts to an orbit around the moon. Two of the astronauts would then descend to the lunar surface. The spacecraft would consist of three parts, or modules -- a command module (CM), a service module (SM), and a lunar module (LM), which was originally called the lunar excursion module (LEM).   Fourteen drone ships were launched it the same time, to confound the enemy's anti-spacecraft ;ystem. The landing went off almost perfectly. One ship suffered minor damage, a near miss boiling away some of the ablative material on one side of the hull, but it'd still be able to make it and return, keeping its speed down while in the ://

The Space Race was a 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for supremacy in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World WarII, enabled by captured German rocket technology and personnel.
