Above is the glorious Saturn V rocket, the one that took men to the moon during the Apollo program, the one that launched Skylab into orbit around the Earth, less than a month after I was born. It was a useful, consumable rocket used from 1966-1973. To see the intricate details of what goes into such a rocket, just click on it for a larger version.
My first view of the Saturn V Rocket was probably in the famous (to my generation) MTV lead-in:
From the fascinating Wikipedia article:
To date, the Saturn V is the only launch vehicle to transport human beings beyond low Earth orbit. A total of 24 astronauts were launched to the Moon, three of them twice, in the four years spanning December 1968 through December 1972.
