This is the first production, man-rated Lunar Module. It was thoroughly tested in NASA’s vacuum chamber with James Irwin and John Bull in 1968. This vehicle was used to test several mission conditions, and the resulting modifications made both LM-3 (Apollo 9) and LM-5 (Apollo 11) possible.


The Apollo 2TV-1 "mission" involved the crew of Joe Kerwin, Vance Brand, and Joe Engle staying in CSM test spacecraft (2TV-1) for 177 hours while the spacecraft was in a large vacuum chamber in Houston.
