Walk-around of the S-IVB's thrust structure.

Picture 5 of 5.

The actual Skylab did not have an exposed thrust structure or engine-related equipment installed. Rather, the aft end of the S-IVB serving as the Orbital Workshop had a radiator and a fairing covering nitrogen spheres for the Thruster Attitude Control System (TACS).
