    SpaceX's Dragon capsule is similar in appearance to the Soviet VA, a crew capsule used in the Soviet lunar program and for the Almaz, the secret military space station which orbited Earth in the 1970's. (Its interior is different from Dragon's.)

    You can see the VA at 3:15 to 3:25 and from 4:25 to the end of this video:

    Apollo Testing and Launch Anomalies
    (The Apollo Program took some risky shortcuts):

    Apollo 4 launched on 9 November 1967:

    The last statement in above article should say "The third Saturn V rocket," not "The third Saturn rocket."

    Apollo 12 had a perfect launch -- for the first 37 seconds:
