Today I had the opportunity to visit the greatest American rocket ever built: Saturn V. The Apollo crews (who consisted of military pilots, many from the Air Force) got to fly the most powerful American rocket ever built. What an amazing sight to see how much this rocket dwarfs the people who flock to see it.
