Alan Lawrie, author of "Saturn," was the guest for this special Space show program. We began the interview by asking Mr. Lawrie why he had an interest in the Saturn V rocket. For many of us, the answer does not come as a surprise given our having grown up in the Saturn V space era. Mr. Lawrie then took us through many of the Saturn V components, manufacturing processes, transportation to Florida, safety, quality control, redundancy, etc. We talked about lessons learned for the modern day rockets, suborbital space tourism, and more.
