This photo is large! Clicking on it once, opens a popup. Click on it again and it will go to the full size version.  Well worth it!

That is a terrific illustration, you know this is a subject I am passonate about.  

Even the graphic illustration is an amazing thing to see, now imagine building every aspect of that in real life?  It was, and still is mindboggling. 

My company, Rocketdyne,  built all the engines used on these Apollo Saturn V rockets.  In total 31 different engines were built for each apollo mission. That included all the 1st, 2nd, 3rd stage rockets, all the engines for the LEM, thrusters, reentry engines, and the escape tower.  

The complexity of the Apollo program, all the systems was a human feat that is still unimaginable today, when you see it on illustrations like this.  

To all those who are moon hoax theorist, one has to only ask a simple question. "Why on earth, would we go to this much trouble, just to fake it"?  

The feat of faking it, would have been so complex, and keeping it secret to this day, is simply preposterous.  

Nice one John, I'll be checking out a lot further, very neat illustration.
