The LEGO Saturn V rocket


It's 9:32 a.m. on 16 July 1969 and the Saturn V rocket is about to blast off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre on Merritt Island, Florida (US). 

Apollo 11 was the name of the mission with the task being to land astronauts on the moon and safely return them to Earth.

Just over four days later Commander Neil Armstrong would take his first steps on to the moon where he would utter those famous words: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

This task was a goal set by US President John F. Kennedy eight years previously, but the team could not have done it without the magnificent Saturn V

The world's Largest rocket, it stood at a proud 110.6m-tall (363 ft) – about the same height as London's St Paul's Cathedral!
