Preserving Our Heritage of Exploration
Our team has had the honor and responsibility of conserving some of humanity’s greatest cultural artifacts, including Saturn V rockets located at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, and the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.
Saturn V rockets launched astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins to the moon during the legendary Apollo 11 mission fifty years ago. The event was televised live in 33 countries on July 16, 1969 at 9:32 AM, with an estimated 25 million viewers in the United States alone. We are awed by the technological events that led to one of the great achievements of human history.
A total of 13 Saturn V rockets were launched between 1967 and 1973, carrying Apollo missions as well as the Skylab space station. Saturn V remains to this day the largest, most powerful American launch vehicle ever built. It measures 363 feet long—60 feet larger than the Statue of Liberty.
Beyond the Saturn V, we have been involved in the restoration and conservation of some of the most significant spaceflight spacecrafts and artifacts across the country, including the Space Shuttle Program.
