Saturn IB SA-209 S-IVB Second Stage
Kennedy Space Center
Titusville, FL

Saturn IB Rocket

• Vehicle Number:SA-209
• Rocket Type:Saturn IB
• Rocket Stage:S-IVB (Second Stage)
This is the Saturn IB rocket on display in the rocket garden at the Visitor Center at the Kennedy Space Center near Titusville, Florida. I didn't take a specific photo of the 2nd stage of this rocket, but it is visible in this photo approximately between and including the two black bands on the rocket. This photo was taken around midnight while at the visitor center on the evening of the first launch attempt for shuttle mission STS-130. This rocket was given vehicle number SA-209. It was stacked and launch ready as the rescue flight for Skylab 4. It was later the launch vehicle for a planned Skylab 5 mission to reboost the Skylab space station. When that mission was canceled, this rocket became surplus. It was put on outdoor display at the Kennedy Space Center.
