Apollo 10 was Moon Landing Rehearsal, EFT-1 Preps for Trips Beyond

www.nasa.gov said:

NASA recently marked the 45th anniversary of Apollo 10, the mission that served as the "dress rehearsal" for the first lunar landing two months later. The agency now is preparing to launch its first human-rated spacecraft capable of not only a trip to the moon, but beyond.

Apollo 10 was the fourth piloted mission in the lunar landing program, testing all the procedures and components without actually landing on the moon. The mission included an all-up test of the lunar module (LM) by the second crew to orbit the moon.
