The rocket is not working against gravity to the same extent, because its path is now inclined, and so smaller engines can be used. Because the mass ratio and nozzle eciency are increased, the use of propellants such as liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen is bene®cial, leading to the high ®nal velocity needed for injection into orbit. The added complexity of, for example, all-cryogenic propellants, is o€set, to some extent, by the smaller size of the engines. The multistage rocket thus lends itself to optimum engine design.

The mission took eight days, and the astronauts returned safely, having spent 22 hours on the Moon. As a milestone in technology, the Saturn V was unique in the twentieth century; and as a human achievement, Apollo 11 was unique in the history of the planet. There was a strong hope that Apollo 11 would be the ®rst step in a concerted e€ort towards human exploration of spaceÐin particular, the planets. However, the shock of achievement left a sense of anticlimax, and the incentive to continue the programme, in the United States, began to diminish almost at once.

Tsien continued to play a major part in the programme, but fell into disfavour in 1975. Nevertheless he is still considered as the father of the modern Chinese space programme, and was honoured by the government in 1991. The Long March used a variety of engines, all developed in China, including those using liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen. Despite the setbacks caused by political upheaval, China has succeeded in establishing and maintaining an indigenous modern rocket technology. Recent developments in China have placed the country as the third in the world to have launched a man into space.
