One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind…
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of one of the most iconic rocket launches, Astropical created this beautiful replica of the engineering masterpiece that is the Saturn V. Launched on the 16th of July 1969 from the Kennedy Space Center, the Saturn V used five F-1 rockets and 20 tons (40,000 pounds) of fuel PER SECOND to propel the first humans out of Earth’s atmosphere and finally enable them to land on the Moon.
At the time, Saturn V rockets were the tallest, heaviest and most powerful rockets ever built. It was powered by fuel made of a mixture of chemicals that burned to produce hot gasses. These gasses would steam out of the rocket’s engine nozzles, propelling the rocket upward with 7.5 million pounds (3.4 million kilograms) of thrust.
Our team at Astropical only wishes we could have been able to witness such a spectacle, which is why we worked very hard using the best modeling software’s combined with cutting edge 3D printing technology to replicate the visual aspect of the launch. Our Saturn V lamp lights your room as the Saturn V lit up the night’s sky 50 years ago.
Down to the color of the flames and smoke, we recreated the Saturn V rocket so that its story can be told and understood by anyone. The Saturn V was used in 13 missions between 1967-1973, we want to keep its legacy alive as this historic launch has contributed so much to the human race.
At Astropical we share beliefs with huge industry leaders such as SpaceX and Blue Origin which is, to make Space travel more accessible, we hope our products can inspire brilliant thinkers to outperform the intellectual engineers that created the Saturn V. So next time you plan to tell a rocket launch story, make sure you’ve got the Saturn V lamp to truly recreate the moment!
