Model, Rocket, Saturn IB, 1:96

     

This is a 1:96 scale model of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Saturn IB rocket, which utilized eight liquid-fuel engines in its first stage and one liquid-fuel engine in its second. They were used to launch three unmanned Apollo command modules and one unmanned Apollo lunar module in 1966-1968. In October 1968, a Saturn IB launched the first manned Apollo mission (Apollo 7) into Earth orbit for ten days. In November 1973, a Saturn IB launched the final Skylab crew into orbit and in July 1975 the U.S. crew for the joint docking with two Soviet cosmonauts in the Apollo-Soyuz Test Program.

NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center built this model and transferred it to NASM in 1973.
