Saturn V Engines Conserved in Kansas
Wednesday, May 29, 2013
(NASA)HUTCHINSON, KANSAS—The mangled Saturn V engines recovered from the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean by Jeff Bezos’ F-1 Recovery Project are being cleaned and conserved at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center. These engines powered Apollo missions to the moon some 40 years ago. All of the engine pieces that were brought to the surface are being scanned and studied in order to build virtual 3-D CAD models and perhaps determine when these particular engines were used. Once the engines are stabilized, they will be displayed at museums across the country.
