Work began in the early 1960s, with North American Aviation building the Apollo Command and Service Modules, as well as the Saturn V launch vehicle’s second stage.  North American assembled the Command and Service Modules at its Downey plant in Calif., with astronauts dropping by to assist with component testing and the design of the cockpit.  A separate North American facility at Seal Beach, Calif., was used to manufacture the Saturn second stage.
