the largest and most powerful launch vehicle ever made, the saturn v exceeded all other rockets in height, weight and payload. it was used by NASA's apollo and skylab programs from 1967 to 1973. at a mass in excess of 33,000 tons, and standing 363 feet (36 stories) tall, this monumental rocket (like its cousin in flight, the SR-71 blackbird) siezes the imagination and won't let go. whether launching manned lunar missions or components of skylab, the saturn v remains unparalleled in performance and service.
