That was good, Tom. I'm certainly no rocket scientist, but I've been enamored of them for years. How can you not be? They're cool as hell and it would be hard to argue that they're not mankind's biggest technical achievement. The drawing was well-done.
My favorite Saturn IV fact:
3. The power generated by the 5 F1 engines of its first stage was in excess of 150 GW (1 GW = 1,000 MW). That’s roughly equivalent to the entire installed power generation capacity in India! Or nearly 2.5 times of the power generation capacity in Texas.
Edit: I would note that the power figures noted above are most likely relevant to 1969, not 2012, but I could be wrong.
