A human landing on the moon would not have been possible without taking on an unprecedented engineering challenge. The main one was to create a rocket powerful enough to carry the Apollo mission towards the Moon. This is how the Saturn V rocket was created, which still it is the most powerful rocket in human history.
Look out! This poster is available in two versions: white and black. You can find the black one by clicking here: Saturn V Apollo Flight Configuration: Redesigned Black.
The history of this rocket began many years before Neil Armstrong made his famous “small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Its creator is Wernher von Braun, who during World War II created, among others, the fearful V2 rockets. After the end of World War II, he was taken over by the Americans and took up work for the US Armed Forces. In the second half of the 1950s, when the Cold War began to turn towards space, he led a team to prove the domination of the Americans over the USSR by launching man’s rockets into the orbit of the Earth and then to the surface of the Moon.
This is how the Apollo program was born for the needs of which this monstrously huge rocket was created. Its designers had to deal with technical problems on an unprecedented scale. Each of the five F-1 (first stage) engines designed to lift this 3000 ton monster off the Earth consumed 3 tons of fuel every second of its work. And their construction and elimination of the problems that led to their unstable operation needed more than 3000 trial firings. The second and third stages of this rocket ensured entry into the Earth’s orbit and the subsequent directing of the Apollo mission towards the Moon in a maneuver (TLI – trans lunar injection). The entire structure was an amazing engineering achievement and the success of human thought in the name of space exploration.
The poster available from Astrography is a revitalized version of the poster created by Boeing in 1968 to show the technical side of the Apollo mission. It has been recreated on the basis of data analysis from multiple sources, such as the official manuals and sketches available in the NASA archives. In addition, the poster was supplemented with many interesting data, such as the Apollo 11 mission event list and timeline.

The original poster (left) was created by Boeing engineers in 1968. To recreate the poster available in our gallery, we analyzed the most detailed scans of the original poster and studied the piles of documentation for the Saturn V rocket and Apollo ships so that our poster accurately reflects the details of this amazing engineering challenge, which was the construction that took people to the moon.
The poster was recreated by Adam Jesionkiewicz (the founder of Astrography).

Super détails et acheminement rapide en France, à peine une semaine.
I like this combo, works really well in my office. Nice addition to my inspirational environment.
Would also be great if I was able to order matching frame as well. It is not possible, so had to sort out myself. I think matching frames would be a nice feature of your service...
The posters look fantastic and the paper and print quality is excellent. Shipping to the US was fast.
I have received lots of compliments from visitors.
