Saturn V Rocket F-1 Engines Recovered!



Almost a year ago I began following Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, quest to recover the original F-1 rocket engines that lifted Apollo 11 into history. I'm happy to report he has recovered parts from two F-1 engines! Jeff used remotely operated submersibles to lift them from a depth over 14,000 feet off the seabed floor. Now the tedious process begins of stabilizing them for public display along with attempting to trace any serial number information back to the original Apollo 11 flight. The mighty Saturn V rocket utilized five F-1 engines to lift itself off Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center on July 16, 1969. GREAT job Jeff!
