Apollo 2 never launched. Apollo 7 was the first
Apollo mission to launch, and Apollo 11 was the
first to actually land on the moon.
The Apollo spacecraft carried their oxygen
with them, which is how they were able to fire
their rockets while in space. Spacecraft today
also must do this as well, even for relatively
innocuous maneuvering such as the Russian
personnel vehicles that dock with the
international space station today.
