Space Flight coloring pages - Apollo - Saturn V Rocket diagram

The Saturn V rocket was built with three "stages" (separate rocket sections built one on top of each other).

Assembly of the rocket took place inside a specially constructed building that was tall enough to house the entire rocket while sitting atop the crawler vehicle that was used to transport it to the launch pad.

The first stage (labeled S-IC), held five enormous F-1 engines that produced a total of 7.5 million pounds of thrust. Stage one burned for only 2.5 minutes, accelerating the spacecraft to a speed of approximately 6000 miles per hour.

The second stage (labeled S-II), used five large J-2 engines which burned for approximately six minutes, taking the spacecraft to a speed of 15,300 miles per hour and an altitude of about 115 miles.

The third stage (labeled S-IVB), fired last putting the spacecraft into orbit. Stage 3 contained only one J-2 engine which could be restarted in order to begin the flight toward the moon.
