Saturn is one of the eight planets in the solar system, sixth in distance from the sun. And the name of Saturn comes from the Roman god of agriculture, Saturn. Saturn is a gas giant, made mostly of hydrogen, with small amounts of helium and elements. And an inner core of rock and ice surrounded by layers of metallic hydrogen and gas. Moreover, with winds of up to 1,800 kilometers per hour, Saturn’s winds are obviously faster than Jupiter’s. Saturn’s planetary magnetic field is between the strength of Earth’s and Jupiter’s. Saturn has a remarkable ring system consisting mainly of icy particles, less rock debris and dust. Saturn’s 82 moons were confirmed in 2019, one of the most in the eight planets.

NASA Mission AS-506 Apollo 11 1969 (including Saturn V, CM-107, SM-107, LM-5)
Author: Christopher Riley 4.8/5.0

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 20th century’s greatest flight achievement, this book chronicles how 400,000 men and women across the US worked to transport human beings across a quarter million miles of hostile space to an unexplored world, and how they ensured that the seven million engineered parts invented to fly this single mission all worked perfectly. The first Moon landing in July 1969 captured the world’s imagination like no other space event before or after. Now, a half century later, the Owners’ Workshop Manual series presentsa fascinating insight into this unparalleled mission, from the raw and fire-breathing power of the mighty Saturn V rocket to the individual stitching on a pressure-suit glove. You’ll also find a new look at how the Apollo missions inspired Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos to think, create the current SpaceX and Blue Origin programs, and look forward to future manned Moon missions and deep-space exploration.

The book is a pleasure to read and an education in design as well as project management. It could be as easily used to teach a college course as well as children since the writing by the authors is able to connect across that broad spectrum. Moreover, the book is the engaging and insightful text, accompanied by remarkable photos and technical images. That is to say that it brings arguably the greatest-ever feat of engineering and human endeavor to life.
