2 stroke, 4 star, Diesel?

I wonder what type of fuel they used to blast off from the Moon for Earth back in the Sixties?

On earth they use Liquid Hydrogen, a volatile substance that has to be watched over by hundreds of technicians and ground staff and yet on the moon they need nobody....funny that.
