How the Saturn V Broke into Pieces Launching to the Moon

The Saturn V left the Earth as a majestic rocket then fell to pieces, just like it was supposed to.

For more details on how the Saturn V broke apart (by design!) reaching orbit, check out my latest blog post on Vintage Space over at Popular Science.

And there's loads of olde timey space to dig into on my blog, Vintage Space, too!

Like even older space? "Breaking the Chains of Gravity: the Story of Spaceflight Before NASA" is available now! You can order your copy on Amazon.

I'm also selling signed hardcover editions of my book on my website!
