I am probably boring everybody, but, I found a link that talks about what various stages are that are displayed in Texas, Alabama and Florida:<br /><br />http://www76.pair.com/tjohnson/saturn.html<br /><br />Wayne <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p>"1) Give no quarter; 2) Take no prisoners; 3) Sink everything."  Admiral Jackie Fisher</p> </div>

I agree, the wow isn't that big factor could have been achived with a mock-up, it should been used.

I agree, the Saturn displays always evoked sadness in me too. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature" align="center"><em><font color="#0000ff">- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -</font></em> </div><div class="Discussion_UserSignature" align="center"><font color="#0000ff"><em>I really, really, really miss the "first unread post" function.</em></font> </div> </div>

Speaking of whats inside, last night I ran across this link on the restoration of a Gemini capsule, fascinating reading:<br /><br />http://www.collectspace.com/restoration/gemini6.html<br /><br />Wayne <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p>"1) Give no quarter; 2) Take no prisoners; 3) Sink everything."  Admiral Jackie Fisher</p> </div>

To your first post -- Yes, I agree, seeing the Saturn V center was both my favorite and least favorite part of KSC. I liked looking at it because it's a beautiful machine, but ... it is damned depressing, all that we once accomplished, and then threw away...<br /><br />To your second post ... Don't make me hurt you <img src="/images/icons/tongue.gif" />

There's currently a big restoration project being undertaken at JSC to refurbish the Saturn V and eventually put a roof over the entire structure to preserve it in the future. The Saturn V's come about as close to a modern wonder of the world as you can get, I hope that there is continued support to preserve these behemoths long into the future.
