Saturn V in Slow Mo

Video from 1969 converted to HD (go to Vimeo to watch in HD) of a Saturn V liftoff. Saturn V is the largest rocket ever flown. It's HUGE!

This clip is raw from Camera E-8 on the launch umbilical tower/mobile launch program of Apollo 11, July 16, 1969. This is an HD transfer from the 16mm original. Even more excellent footage is available on our DVDs at our website at

The camera is running at 500 fps, making the total clip of over 8 minutes represent just 30 seconds of actual time. Narration is provided by Mark Gray (me), Executive Producer for Spacecraft Films.
