Return to Spacecraft

Kennedy Space Center

Cape Canaveral

One of the most impressive displays at the Kennedy Space Center is the Saturn V Rocket.

 

It was used to blast the astronauts to the Moon.

 

It is unfortunately impossible to show the enormous size of this rocket in a picture.

It is over 360 feet tall, and produces over 7.5 million pounds of thrust at lift-off.

 

But no matter how big or how heavy, I was still able to lift it off the floor for a little while.
