Spring Break Idea: Rocket Engine Coming to Seattle Museum
Rocket engine parts from Apollo moon missions will be on display in May in Seattle.
The 50-year-old, 18.5-foot tall engine is currently in one of the Museum of Flights offsite facilities after the road trip from NASA. The engine will be set up with beat-up components from the first-stage engines that were used to power the Saturn V rockets space-ward on the Apollo 12 and Apollo 16 missions. This engine is one of the few parts that have been recovered, and will soon be on display in Seattle to give a visual of how the F-1 components fit together.
