We’ve seen the facilities where the spacecraft and the launch vehicle were assembled, tested, and integrated into the space vehicle. Now, it’s time to look at the place where the Apollo/Saturn V spent its final 2 months on Earth in the Florida sun: the launch pad. This section of the book will explore the LC-39 launch pads and their supporting facilities. We will also hear first-hand accounts of the challenges of working at the launch pads during the Apollo years.
