Saturn V were carried out by a Aeronautics and Space Adminis . Government Industry team which tration announced that it would. included the National Aero develop a new rocket much. nautics and Space Administra larger than any previously. tion the Boeing Company North attempted It would be based. American Rockwell McDonnell on the F 1 rocket engine the. Douglas Corporation Inter development of which had been. national Business Machines and underway since 1958 and on the. their sub contractors Many hydrogen fueled J 2 engine upon. of the design features were out which work had begun in 1960 . growths of the earlier develop , ment work accomplished by The Saturn V program was the. military service organizations biggest rocket effort under . and their contractors taken in this country Its, total cost was above 7 billion .
INTRODUCTION It consisted of three stages, and an instrument unit When. On April 11 1961 Major Yuri completed it was 363 feet tall . Gagarin made his historic, and weighed approximately 6 1. voyage around the world The million pounds when fully loaded . Soviet Union and the United,States became involved in a. The first step towad the moon,technical race for prominence. was the launch of a smaller , in space On May 25 1961 class Saturn vehicle in October.

Now it is time to take longer launch of the Saturn V on. strides time for this nation November 9 1967 On December. to take a clearly leading role 21 1968 the first manned. in space achievement which in flight and third launch of. many ways may hold the key to, the Saturn V took place with. our future on earth I believe Borman Lovell and Anders in. that this nation should commit the Apollo 8 Two more flights. itself to achieving the goal carried men both around the. before this decade is out of, earth and around the moon to. landing a man on the moon and, SATURN V ROCKET,test the hardware for the.
attempt at a manned landing ,In July of 1969 the sixth. launch of the Saturn V carried,the Apollo XI mission of. Armstrong Collins and Aldrin,to the first manned landing on. the moon Six additional,launches succeeded in achiev . ing five more lunar landings,through December 1972 The.
last launch of the Saturn V,orbited the unmanned Skylab. 13 vehicles were launched,between November 19 1967 and. May 14 1973 Today the last,three Saturn V vehicles are on. display One is located at the,Kennedy Space Center Florida . another at the Marshall Space,Flight Center Alabama and the.
third at the Johnson Space,Center in Texas ,THE FIRST STAGE. The S IC stage provides the,first stage boost of the Saturn.
