Saturn V Rocket & Launch Facilities (Apollo Program)
The Saturn V is the most powerful rocket ever launched successfully. With its huge capacity, this rocket carried the Apollo missions to the Moon.
"We choose to go to the Moon! We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win. . . . This is in some measure an act of faith and vision, for we do not know what benefits await us. . . . But space is there and we are going to climb it."
President JF Kennedy, 1962
Description of the project
This project includes the Saturn V rocket, with its mobile launch platform and the launch tower in microscale. Three astronaut minifigures are included (not to the same scale as the rocket).
The main picture show the Saturn rocket during final preparations for launch and an astronaut. A historic moment, which will be crowned with the success of the Apollo 11 mission which first took man to the moon. This set is a must for lovers of space exploration and fans of Lego.
Thank you very much for your support.
Space is there and we are going to climb it.
