It is July 4, 1967. Following the successful launch of Apollo 1 in February, and the Apollo 2 CSM test, NASA is ready to launch the first manned Apollo Mission which will use the powerful Saturn V rocket. Apollo 3 (very similar to the historical Apollo 9 mission) is the first manned earth orbit flight test of the CSM. Apollo 4 (very similar to the historical Apollo 10 mission) is projected to be the first manned lunar orbital mission. In space of course, there are always risks! You will alternate as Crew and Mission Control in two two hour segments simulating an Apollo Launch, and in flight problems.
