• Saturn V

    The Saturn V rocket, the most powerful rocket put into use to date. At 7.5 million pounds of thrust, the Saturn V is the vehicle which allowed man to exist on a body other than our home planet, and at a time when doing so required a herculean effort in practical science, engineering, and cooperation. Through sheer force it is a testament to our willingness and capability to go beyond ourselves and our prescribed home, our oasis in the universe, and to seek out new worlds as a space faring species.
