Description

One of the first three test flights of the Saturn I booster. Here, it is depicted as it has lifted off from Launch Complex 34 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Saturn I was the first heavy-lift dedicated space launcher used in the United States. 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. The rocket was used for testing rocket motor technology, aerodynamics, flight control and mockups (boilerplate) versions of the Apollo Command/Service Modules. Ten Saturn I rockets were flown until the model was replaced by the Saturn IB.
