Using hardware developed for the Apollo lunar missions, the American Skylab space station evolved from ideas for extended manned spaceflight created under the Apollo Applications Program (AAP). These missions were designed to use the skills and experiences gained from the lunar flights and apply them to a range of missions in Earth orbit, at the moon and eventually deeper into space towards Mars. Unfortunately severe budget cuts and re-planning cancelled most of these proposals but what did emerge became one of the most important series of missions for developing the skills of living and working in space for extend durations.
