saturn V rocket

I think I have never managed to stay awake through any of the Star Wars films.

Obviously lots and lots of people have.

We had a trip to Florida in 2005 and visited the Kennedy Space Centre.

The picture at the top is the business end of a Saturn V and the picture below is the re-usable motors from the Space Shuttle. Big toys.

There are some incredible statistics related to the Saturn V in the popular mechanics website. “Enough energy to light up New York City for 75 minutes”. That was written before LED (low energy) lights became common place.
