Apollo 17 Command Module

The Soviet Union encountered many problems when attempting a moon expedition. Many different rocket designers fought to have their voices heard, delaying development of a launcher to take a man to the moon. There was a lack of funds because the Soviet military, who provided the funding, questioned the value of such a project. In 1969, the N1 Moon Rocket, pictured, was finally approved for test launches, however after many failed launches the project was abandoned in 1974.
