There are 2 names associated with most spacecraft. The program name (which is a series of several spacecraft over several years) and the name of the spacecraft itself. Sometim…es the spacecraft is simply the program with a number after it. Russian programs such as Vostock and Soyuz used this method. The U.S. named their first programs after Greek gods; Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. There were seven Mercurys, several Geminis, and 15 Apollos. Individual spacecraft within those programs were named with more fun names. For example, Apollo 11 consisted of 3 spacecraft, the lunar module (which landed on the moon's surface) service module and the command module (which remained in lunar orbit to return the astronauts home). The lunar module was known as LM-5 as it was being built but was given the patriotic name "Eagle" by the astronauts. The service module was known as SM-107 and the command module CM-107 during construction. Astronauts named the command module Columbia. Apollo 10 Astronauts named their lunar and command modules Charlie Brown and Snoopy. There have been five space shuttles; Columbia, Discovery, Challenger, Endeavour, and Atlantis. Discovery and Challenger were destroyed in flight, and the others have been retired and will be displayed at museums in Virginia, California, and Florida.
