Standing 365 feet tall and generating a liftoff thrust of over seven and a half million pounds - the Saturn V launch vehicle remains the most powerful successful rocket ever flown. Built by hundreds of thousands of workers from all over the country, the Saturn V was born of the dream of a man on the moon. In just a few short years the Saturn V was conceived, designed, tested, constructed and launched on 13 successful missions, placing 12 human beings on the lunar surface. This three-DVD set features incredible footage of the story of the Saturn V. From rare footage of overcoming technological challenges in materials and techniques - to stunning digital transfers of original 35mm pad camera footage - you'll come to know the Saturn V as you've never known it before. Material on this disc has been collected from the National Archives, Johnson Space Center in Houston, and the lead center for the Saturn launch vehicles, Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Disc one contains an original program detailing the development of the Saturn V. With rare footage of the development of the engines and stages, you'll see the challenges faced and overcome by the Saturn team - and understand the scope of the task. Disc two contains footage from all 13 Saturn V launches, including reels presented "as it happened," just as it was shot in the camera. Disc three presents footage from pad cameras, transferred digitally from the original film - an outstanding collection of material showing the power of the moon rocket.
