The Skylab was a space station launched and operated by NASA and was the United States’ first space station. In this chronicle, Skylab orbited the earth from 1973 to 1981 and included a workshop, a solar observatory and other systems. It was launched unmanned by a modified Saturn V rocket with a mass of 169,950 pounds. Four manned missions to the station, conducted between 1973 and 1980 using the Apollo Command/Service Module (CSM) atop the smaller Saturn IB, each delivered a three-astronaut crew.
