The First Launch of Saturn V (November 9, 1967)

When Saturn V lifts off from earth from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on November 9, 1967 for the first time, it rattles windows miles away. The rocket, which was supposed to take the Apollo program to the moon, was the biggest and strongest space carrier system of its time—as well as an important step ahead in the space race. Ever since 1961, when John F. Kennedy announced his ambitious goal to put a man on the moon within a decade, hundreds of thousands of scientists and engineers had been working on making it come true. The controversial German aerospace visionary Wernher von Braun, who had designed the „retaliation weapon“ V2 during the Third Reich, and who had been moved to the USA after the end of World War II, was entrusted with the development of an adequate carrier system.  Saturn V is developed within just five years. With its three propulsion stages and the Apollo spacecraft on top, it stood 110 m tall and weighed 3,000 tons and was able to reach a speed of up to 40,000 km/h. The colossal proportions of this endeavor require the construction of gigantic production halls, transport vehicles and launch pads and devours billions of US-dollars. After all individual components of the carrier system had passed elaborate checks, the super-rocket completes its maiden flight as part of the Apollo-4-mission on November 9, 1967. One year later, after only two more test flights, it goes on its first manned flight to the moon with Apollo 8—at first just within the lunar orbit. In July of 1969 Saturn V carries out the task it was made for, the one it became famous for: with Apollo 11 it transports the spacecraft Columbia, from here Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin take the lunar module Eagle to land on the moon. Kennedy’s vision is fulfilled.   

After having delivered 24 men to the moon, Saturn V goes on its last mission in 1973 and takes the space station Skylab into space.
