    Number of Parts: 78

    The Saturn V, developed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Cnetre under the direction of Wenrher von Braun, was the largest in a family of liquid-propellant rockets that solved the problem of getting to the Moon. The three stage rocket was taller than a 36 story building and was the largest, most powerful rocket ever built. A total of thirty-two Saturns of all types were launched; with not one failing. Fifteen of these were Vs.

    With a cluster of five powerful engines in each of the first two stages and using high-performance liquid hydrogen fuel for the upper stages, the Saturn V was one of the great feats of 20th-century engineering. Inside, the rocket contained three million parts in a labyrinth of fuel lines, pumps, gauges, senors, circuits, and switches; each of which had to function reliably.

    The Saturn V was flight-tested twice without a crew. The first manned Saturn V sent the Apollo 8 astronauts into orbit around the Moon in December 1968. after two more missions to test the lunar landing vehicle, in July 1969 a Saturn V launched the crew of Apollo 11 to the first manned landing on the moon.
