PreLaunch Mission Operation Report No. M-932-69- 10 MEMORANDUM To: A/Ad ministrator From: MA/Apollo Program Director Subject: Apollo 10 Mission (AS-505) No earlier than 18 May 1969, we plan to launch the next Apollo/Saturn V mission, Apollo 10. This will be the third manned Saturn V flight, the fourth flight of a manned Apollo Command/Service Module, and the second flight of a manned Lunar Module. The Apollo 10 Mission will be a manned lunar mission development flight. It will demonstrate crew/space vehicle/mission support facilities performance during a manned lunar mission with the Command/Service Module and Lunar Module, and will evaluate Lunar Module performance in the cislunar and lunar environment. The mission will be about eight days in duration and will use the operational configuration of the Saturn V Launch Vehicle and Apollo Spacecraft. Apollo 10 will be the first Saturn V flight launched from Pad B of Launch Complex 39 at the Kennedy Space Center. Five daily launch windows per month have been selected for May, June, and July. The first three days of each monthly window provide favorable lunar lighting conditions for the primary Apollo 11 Mission landing sites. The last two days of each monthly window provide slightly degraded lunar lighting conditions. Lunar operations will simulate the Apollo 11 Mission timeline as closely as possible. Recovery *ill be in the Pacific Ocean at 165 degrees west longitude and at southern latitudes for the first two days ofsach monthly window and at 175 degrees west longitude and northern latitudes thereafter. Lt. General, -USAF- Apollo Program Director APPROVAL: G Associate Administrator for Manned Space Flight -- _ . _ _-” ~-^ ----^___.

Prepared by: Apollo Program Office-MAO FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY
FOREWORD MISSION OPERATION REPORTS are published expressly for the use of NASA Senior Management, as required by the Administrator in NASA Instruction 6-2-10, dated August 15, 1963. The purpose of these reports is to provide NASA Senior Manage- ment with timely, complete, and definitive information on flight mission plans, and to establish official mission objectives which provide the basis for assessment of mission accompl ishment . Initial reports are prepared and issued for each flight project just prior to launch. Following launch, updating reports for each mission are issued to keep General Management currently informed of definitive mission results as provided in NASA Instruction 6-2-10. Because of their sometimes highly technical orientation, distribution of these reports is limited to personnel having program-project management responsibilities. The Office of Public Affairs publishes a comprehensive series of pre-launch andpost- launch reports on NASA flight missions, which are available for general distribution. The Apollo 10 Mission Operation Report is published in two volumes: the Mission Operation Report (MOR); and the Mission Operation Report Supplement. This format was designed to provide a mission-oriented document in the MOR with only a very brief description of the space vehicle and support facilities. The MOR Supplement is a program-oriented reference document with a more comprehensive description of the space vehicle, launch complex, and mission monitoring, support, and control facilities. The MOR Supplement was issued on 25 February 1969 for the previous mission, Apollo 9, and will not be reissued for this mission.
