KSC has also renovated and moved the mission control for Mercury and Gemini into the Visitor Center. Man, I love these winky blinkies.
This is the rear end of the Saturn V Rocket's primary ascent stage. There are five Rocketdyne F-1 RP1 kerosene-fueled rocket engines here. Each F-1 can produce 1,522,000 of thrust. The F-1 was the most powerful rocket engine ever used in service.
