Wernher von Braun and F-1 Engines

Wernher von Braun stands near the cluster of five F-1 engines on the Saturn V launch vehicle, developed by the Rocketdyne company under the direction of the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Madison County. The engines were nearly 20 feet long and more than 12 feet tall, and each one produced 1.5 million pounds of thrust.
