Saturn V rocket launch, artwork. The Saturn V was the launch vehicle for NASA's Apollo program of manned missions to the Moon. The Apollo program took place between 1961 and 1975. The Saturn V was one of the most powerful rockets ever made. Fully fuelled, the 110-metre high rocket weighed over 3000 tonnes. Five F-1 engines, burning a mixture of liquid oxygen and rocket fuel (kerosene) were used in the rocket's first stage, the stage used during take-off. The first stage burned for 2 minutes 41 seconds, lifting the rocket to an altitude of 68 kilometres. A second and third stage boosted the spacecraft to its parking orbit.
