Description

Before rolling a functional Apollo-Saturn launch vehicle, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) used a full-scale mock up made from "boilerplate" parts to test assembly and rolling the rocket to the pad. SA-500F also was used for a propellant transfer "wet" test although the rocket was inert. The foreground of the photograph shows the propellant tank farm and water pressure systems.
