This is a High Definition ready model of the Saturn V Launch Vehicle that took man to the moon and will be used in future human interplanetary travel.
Detailed textures are provided including diffuse, bump, specular. Maximum dimension of textures are 4096 pixels. Photoshop template files are available for download with the product so you can modify the layered textures to your liking.
The geometry includes enough detail to animate launch, stage breakaway, and orbit. It includes detailed engines for all three stages and the lunar orbiter. The Saturn V (popularly known as the Moon Rocket) was a multistage liquid-fuel expendable rocket used by NASA's Apollo and Skylab programs. It was the largest production model of the Saturn family of rockets, although NASA contemplated larger models. The rocket was designed under the direction of Wernher von Braun at the Marshall Space Flight Center, with the lead contractors being TheCompany, North American Aviation,Aircraft Company, and IBM. On all but one of its flights, the Saturn V consisted of three stages — the S-IC first stage, S-II second stage and the S-IVB third stage. All three stages used liquid oxygen (LOX) as an oxidizer. The first stage used RP-1 for fuel, while the second and third stages used liquid hydrogen (LH2). An average mission used the rocket for a total of about 20 minutes. NASA launched thirteen Saturn V rockets from 1967 to 1973, with no loss of payload. (Although Apollo 6 and Apollo 13 did lose engines, the onboard computers were able to compensate.) The main payloads of the rocket were the Apollo spacecraft which carried the NASA astronauts to the Moon. It also launched the Skylab space station, and was supposed to be the prime launch vehicle for the cancelled Voyager program Mars probes, a project later carried out by the Viking program in 1976.
