The sign accompanying the F-1 engine. It reads
The F-1 Engine
Marshall's Legacy of Flight
The largest liquid-powered rocket engine ever used to launch Americans into
space, the F-1 was the key to successfully "slipping the surly bonds" of
Earth's gravity and sending Apollo astronauts on their first historic missions
to the moon. With 1.5 million pounds of thrust and arranged in clusters of
five to power the Saturn V's first
stage, the F-1 was a staggering ten times more powerful than other, conventional engines of
the 1950s and 1960s.
