Super Stellar Friday July 5th will feature a talk on the Saturn V Rocket led by one of the Discovery Center's Volunteer Educators, Carl Wilhelm Soderstrom. The talk will include a history, alternative history, and the engineering behind the Saturn V Rocket. Carl will also explore early studies for the rocket, the Saturn B - 1958, how the Saturn V worked, why it is called the Saturn V, the layout, where it could have gone, the enormous cost of the project, the nuclear upper stages, the low and high gears for the rocket, the strap-on boosters and much more. Is there a possibility of building a rocket like the Saturn V again? Should we? Come check out Carl's talk to find out!
