A Truly Historic Model Rocket!

The original Saturn V was a 3-stage rocket that stood 363 feet high (110.6m) and weighed approximately 6.2 million pounds. As the tallest, heaviest and most powerful rocket ever produced, it generated 7.6 million pounds of thrust at lift off.

At just over 36 stories tall, it stood about 60 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty! That made it quite an impressive site on the launch pad.

The Saturn V was at the heart of NASA’s Apollo and Skylab programs. As it was able to launch a 45-ton payload beyond low earth orbit. Such a capacity was necessary for sending men to the moon. A total of 13 Saturn V launches took place between 1967 and 1973, delivering 24 astronauts successfully to the moon and back to earth.

The first launch of the Saturn V rocket was during the Apollo 4 mission of 1967. This crew-less launch was for testing the rocket. The first launch with a crew occurred in December of 1968. It took place during the Apollo 8 mission which sent astronauts in orbit around the moon but did not land.

Apollo 9 added another piece to the puzzle as the moon lander was tested by flying in Earth's orbit. Thus, Apollo 10 saw the lander launch to the moon, testing its space flight again without landing. Then came Apollo 11 in 1969, changing the space race forever!

We were finally able to land astronauts on the moon and take that famous first step into the future. Successful missions followed with the Saturn V rocket, landing astronauts on the moon during Apollo 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17. The last launch of this historic rocket came in 1973 when it was used to launch the Skylab space station into Earth orbit.
