The Saturn V launch vehicle
The iconic Saturn V launch vehicle was developed with the specific brief to sent astronauts to the Moon and in doing so, it left a long lasting impression on those who saw it ascend. David Woods describes its origins, development and the truly awesome technology that made it work.
Mr Woods is author of the new Haynes manual on the Saturn V, of How Apollo flew to the Moon, and co-author of the Haynes manuals about the Gemini spacecraft and the Lunar Rover. He is also editor of NASA's Apollo Flight Journal.
