The Saturn V Launch Vehicle propelled humanity on it voyages to the moon between 1968 and 1972 and served to launch the Skylab space station. The Saturn V for the Apollo missions was comprised of three booster stages and instrument unit – all in support of the Apollo Command/Service and Lunar Modules. At 363 feet, it represents the largest successful human-rated rocket to date. The cancellation of three lunar landing missions led to surplus hardware – one of these Saturn V’s would launch Skylab in 1973 – the two remaining Saturn V vehicle would ultimately serve as the foundation for several Saturn V displays.
We have concluded scanning the Saturn V, Apollo 14 Command Module and Astronaut Transfer Van in March 2015. Data processing in underway! We thank the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center for permission to capture this national treasure that represents the climax of the Space-Age. Thank you to FARO and DeWalt Corporation for their assistance and support.
