The Saturn V Rocket

One Small Step...

One Small Step...

This is my drawing commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 on July 16, 1969. Three days later Neil Armstrong would step onto the surface of the Moon! Weighing 6.5 million pounds with a staggering height of 363 feet the Saturn V rocket is still the most powerful rocket ever built. The small grey area near the top is the Apollo 11 Command Module and Lunar Excursion Module (LEM). How fast could it go? About 37,522 km/hr!! Man is scheduled to return to the moon in 2024 using it as a base for future trips to Mars. How exciting is that. I remember being at my Grandmothers house in 1969 and watching the moon landing live. I'll never forget it. It took 200,000 years for humankind to reach a population of 1 Billion but only another 200 years to reach 7.5 Billion! What this tells us is that space exploration is essential - the planet can only hold so many people. That's what reaching out to the Moon and Mars is all about. "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." And the dream continues...
