This kid wastes no time...got right to it, LoL. He did not want to stop, so he just said he would start on bag 3 when he wakes up. It has to be built from the inside out😩.I promise we are not helping him, except when he needs help snapping in a stubborn piece. It's crazy. He amazes me! 💞 #legos#saturnV#legosaturnV#only6#2hours#legomaster
From a cost to satisfaction perspective, I'm giving the LEGO Saturn V high marks. At a retail price of $120, it's fairly affordable by LEGO standards. It stands around 3 feet tall. Growing up, as I did, in the 60s, the Apollo program and the Saturn V itself continue to fascinate me.
The most interesting aspects of the LEGO Saturn V are hidden from view. I think their designers do a great job, however, I think they use pieces that serve no purpose apart from giving the builder extra actions to perform.
Happy Earth Day! 🌎🌍🌏 REPOST of @nasa ・・・
On November 9, 1967, the uncrewed Apollo 4 test flight made a great ellipse around Earth as a test of the translunar motors and of the high speed entry required of a crewed flight returning from the Moon. A 70mm camera was programmed to look out a window toward Earth, and take a series of photographs from "high apogee." Seen looking west are coastal Brazil, the Atlantic Ocean, West Africa and Antarctica. This photograph was made as the Apollo 4 spacecraft orbited Earth at an altitude of 9,544 miles.
The Saturn/Apollo 4 mission was the first all-up test of the three stage Saturn V rocket. It carried the Apollo Command and Service Module into Earth orbit. The mission was designed to test all aspects of the Saturn V launch vehicle and return pictures of Earth. The mission was deemed successful and ushered in a golden era of space travel.

Looking back at the Apollo 11 capsule with some of my engineering colleagues. It’s absolutely incredible to see what people did 49 years ago in sending the first astronauts to the moon! Hearing the voices of the crew and control room, the images of the events leading up to the launch, survival equipment, injector plate from an F1 engine (it flowed 671 gallons of combine mix/fuel per second!!) - and of course the Columbia command module is such a treat! #stlouissciencecenter#nasa#saturnv#apollo
First attempt at a @iss lunar transit. You can see the station enter from the top as the little white dot. The video is slowed down to 10% normal speed as the transit only lasts around half a second. The ISS goes in front of the moon at 11 o clock if the moon were a clock. #spotthestation
