Perfectly successful round trip, next one will be with astronauts.

One of the amazing side notes about the Saturn V is that at liftoff, it was burning fifteen tons of fuel per second. Think about that. What does fifteen tons of liquid oxygen and hydrogen look like? A room full of 55-gallon drums? And then imagine pumping that much fuel every second for the next minute or so...

Which reminds me of another tangent (sorry to hijack the thread, but please bear with me) During the Second World War, when the 8th Air Force would launch several hundred B-17s and B-24s on a mission, along with squadrons of fighter escort, imagine the effort it took to supply enough gasoline for all those planes. And then do it again a day or two later, for months on end. That was a LOT of gasoline that had to be trucked in!

Oh that's right..Another location of the leaks. Here we are approaching Dec..Anyone check the solid Booster O rings ? Most aerodynamic craft transfer fuel internally.. Not this afterthought. I know,,,,the Saturn used it. And the Falcon 9.  Just picking on the swamp.

 I wanna know what the Un-Aerodynamic Downspout is for ? Toilet overflow ?  Not half the cool factor as a Saturn.

 
Fuel transfer pipe from the upper tank down to the bells.

Wow, that's awesome! The incredible level of engineering, planning and execution ought to be humbling for any human being to consider. Much like the Saturn V launches so many years ago. One of my great regrets is that I never got to see a Saturn V launch, but I intend to go go see one of these!

By the age of 10 I had every detail of the Saturn memorized. Our greatest moment in history.  Aeronca Champ was the first aircraft I ever flew. The instructor took it over on Base leg and brought her in..Stiff crosswind that day and I had never heard of crabbing..Scared the H#ll out of me until he kicked her over. You are blessed to have stood by that bird as it prepared for it's mission. I have never seen it. Have stood beside the F1 motor..1.75 million lbs of thrust each.

When I was a kid our family visited Kennedy Space Center. It was early summer of 1969. Armed with my trusty Kodak Instamatic camera, I took black & white photographs of Apollo 11 standing on the pad at Launch Complex 39! 

    My dad worked for Aeronca, which built airplanes through the 1930's and 40's, and by the 60's was one of the subcontractors to North American Aviation, which was building the command modules. Aeronca had developed the technique of manufacturing honeycomb sandwich panels out of titanium, which were used on the B-58 and XB-70, and was by that time using the same method to build the external skin panels for the command module. 

    That was the first time I saw a Saturn V, and I've seen the static displays since then (still breathtaking to see) but one of the great regrets of my life is that I never got to experience the launch of a Saturn V. An engineer who had witnessed it told me it sounded like thousands of cannons all firing in rapid succession. It's hard to imagine what it must've been like to ride on top of that!
