During the mid-1960s, the Apollo Applications Program (AAP) had envisioned not only Earth orbital survey missions but lunar orbit mapping and extended lunar landing flights. Through the later 1960s, AAP was scaled back to Earth orbit operations and utilized the tanks inside the S-IVB. They would not contain fuel but could be turned into a habitable module with scientific equipment stored inside prior to launch. This program, known as SKYLAB, had three manned missions, with visits from a total of nine astronauts from 1973-74.
