Apollo 23 was an aborted mission as the Saturn V was destroyed before launch on August 24, 1974 in an explosion that killed 12 NASA staff, including Gene Kranz. The 3 crew members, Commander Michael Collins, and astronauts Henry and Emondson survived, but were injured after their command module spacecraft landed on the beach instead of in the Atlantic Ocean.

The mission was to replace the crew of Apollo 22 on board on Jamestown.
