World's largest rocket, Saturn V booster production was formally started at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center on Jan.25,1962.
Then total cost, including the production of 15 vehicles becomes more than $7 billion.
The Saturn IB booster was planned in 1962 as a high-performance, low cost upgrade to the Saturn I.
This was done by using the S-IVB and the IU of the Saturn V, and the existing Saturn I first stage.
It was completed in only 39 months by combining the existing systems.
In the Apollo project, the development of spacesuit was an important subject, too.
Even if they went to the moon all the way, it can't be said they won against the Soviet Union with only taking photos from window.
Spacesuit was another spaceship for Apollo project.
In Apollo project, many computers were active in many places like spacecrafts, Saturn boosters, computer center on the ground.
However, at that time it was the early days of computers, so NASA had to work with MIT, IBM and others to develop new technologies one after another.
