Description

The second test flight of the Saturn I (SA-2) rocket was launched successfully not long after this photograph was taken at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The Saturn I rocket was designed to launch payloads into low Earth orbit and was the most powerful launch vehicle used by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to date. SA-2 was a suborbital flight which released a test payload of 30,000 gallons of water in the upper atmosphere, in order to examine the effects of radio transmissions and local weather. Ten Saturn I rockets were flown until the model was replaced by the Saturn IB.
