Saturn IB

Dominating the Rocket Garden (Google Maps link) is a Saturn IB, SA-209. This booster, designated as the booster for a Skylab rescue mission should it prove necessary and later as a backup booster for the ASTP mission, it was never used for its intended purpose and today is one of two remaining Saturn IBs.

I have a picture of SA-209 in happier times.

As of now, I have not yet sorted through all of my pictures of the Saturn IB, but some other page references this location. Thus, this is a "place holder" version right now, with only the pictures actually referenced. Come back some time later to see if I've finished up, or drop me an email to request me to prioritize the rest of these pictures.
