I really like this shot, it's a little bit different but brilliant all the same.

Yellow Star!

Thank you Leila! That was my goal, something a little bit different, since the same five things at Kennedy are already so heavily photographed. :)

Me, too, me too! Love it!

Thanks Kim! They say that this first stage was actually the first-first stage built, and they used it for test firing to get everything perfect before building the others. I'd like to see them test fire these engines again. They could even fire it right in this building, just have to open the doors first!

Would that not be a cool thing, or what?

Very nice photo of the Saturn V, Ryan! A spectacular piece of engineering and even 40 years later, it still speaks to the imagination.

Cool stuff.

Cheers, Justin

Absolutely, Kim! It shouldn't be that hard for them to set up, just for me!

Thanks Justin! It certainly is an amazing machine, and great to be so close to it. Cheers, Ryan
