    I had to google the Mr. Gorsky story: good one.  Smile

      "Each of the engines weighs nearly 9 tons, and they came in a cluster of five. They provided 32 million horsepower by burning 6,000 pounds of fuel every second, and together, they lifted the largest rocket in history 38 miles above the Earth in less than three minutes."

       

      I would've loved to have been there for a Saturn V launch.

       

      Just walking past that monster is awesome.  And considering it was done with slide rules, discrete transistors, and probably even some vacuum tubes...

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
