Skylab I was a manned space mission that met with Skylab in orbit to make repairs and deploy a solar shield to cool the internal temperature of Skylab. After its launch on May 25, 1973, from the Kennedy Space Center, the mission succeeded. The crew, which consisted of commander Charles C. Conrad Jr., pilot Paul J. Weitz, and scientist Joseph Kerwin, was recovered on June 22, 1973, after traveling 11.5 million miles over the course of 28 days and 49 minutes.
