Saturn V

The Saturn V (pronounced "Saturn five") was an American human-rated expendable rocket used by NASA between 1967 and 1973. The three-stage liquid-fueled super heavy-lift launch vehicle was developed to support the Apollo program for human exploration of the Moon and was later used to launch Skylab, the first American space station.

One idea for the Space shuttle was to strap it onto a Saturn V!

We all know the space shuttle with its iconic orange liquid fuel tanks and 2 side mounted solid rocket boosters. But did you know that one of the early ideas to launch the space shuttle was to stick onto a modified Saturn V rocket!?
