This YouTube clip includes a lot of footage from the Apollo 11 launch that I've never seen.
Even after 40 years the complexity of what NASA engineers did is astounding. We've all seen the gantry arms swing back, but I've never noticed the way the flexible pipes that feed liquid oxygen to the Saturn V retract into the gantry arms. I've never noticed the protective shields that swing down and protect components of the launch structure from the thrust generated by the rocket's motors. Has mankind ever built a machine as complex since the Saturn V? I don't think so.
Go down to Space Center Houston where they have the Apollo 18 vehicle on display so you can appreciate the enormity of what we did as a country. Man, I wish I was around to see the Apollo launches.
AIG bailout cost: $182 billion.
Entire Apollo program cost: $145 billion. That's inflation-adjusted.
