Figure 2-4. After the S-IVB stage had placed the Apollo spacecraft on its proper trajectory to the moon, the Apollo command and service module-lunar module adapter panels blossomed outward. The CSM separated from the launch vehicle stage, pulled away, turned around, docked with the lunar module, and then pulled the LM away from the S-IVB. In this- docked configuration, the spacecraft made its way to the moon.
