Apollo F-1 engines


Probably you already heard about the team, organised by Jeff Bezos, with a mission to recover the Apollo Saturn V rockets (used to sent US astronauts to the moon). Well, the mission was successful and now it is time for the cleaning and preservation phase of those awesome engineering machines. Those are two photos that I’ve grab from a recent Wired article that you should read! The technicians are still using fine brushes and gentle movements as they are at very early face of the cleaning process


The interesting information? Until now Jeff Bezos and his team still doesn’t know precisely from which Apollo mission these particular engines came from! Probably they are going to find soon from a manufacturing plate or a tailor made designed part manufactured and build only for one engine of a specific moon mission
