239 – The Saturn V Launch Vehicle

(average: 4.83)

Guest: David Woods     Host: Markus Voelter    Shownoter: Stefaan Rillaert

David Woods has a new book out, so of course he has to talk about it on omega tau :-) His recent book is about the Saturn V launch vehicle, i.e., this time it is about the rocket, not about the spaceship. In this episode we dive into lots of details that we did not cover in the two Apollo episodes (episodes 83 and 97) — make sure you have listened to those before you listen to this one.
