Saturn V SA-515 S-II Second Stage
Johnson Space Center
Houston, TX

Saturn V Rocket

• Vehicle Number:SA-515
• Rocket Type:Saturn V
• Rocket Stage:S-II (Second Stage)
This is the 2nd stage from Saturn V vehicle SA-515 on display at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Vehicle SA-515 was originally in line to be used for the Apollo 20 flight to the moon, but that flight was canceled before the hardware was complete. SA-515 was retasked as the backup launcher for the Skylab space station. Later, it was proposed to launch the backup Skylab as a follow-on mission using this rocket. The SA-515 stages were retired in the late 1970s and put on display. It was restored and moved indoors in 2005. This photo is from 1990.
