apollo mission
Project Apollo's goals went beyond landing Americans on the Moon and returning them safely to Earth.
They included:Establishing the technology to meet other national interests in space.Achieving preeminence in space for the United States.Carrying out a program of scientific exploration of the Moon.Developing man's capability to work in the lunar environment.

Apollo 1
Apollo 1 was designated the first mission in order to honor the men who died in the fire on the launch pad. This even was actually only a scheduled rehearsal / test and not a planned flight. Giving the event a full mission number designation seemed to make it more like the men died in the direct line of duty - which they actually did, but it sounds better than calling it only a test.
