SATURN 5 R/B


SATURN 5 R/B is classified as:


NORAD ID: 4226
Int'l Code: 1969-099B
Launch date: November 14, 1969
Source: United States (US)
Launch site: AIR FORCE EASTERN TEST RANGE (AFETR)

The Apollo Saturn V SIVB was the third stage of the Saturn V booster. The SIVB consisted of a truncated cone with a bottom diameter of 10.06 m topped by a long cylinder with a diameter of 6.60 m. Total height was 17.80 m. It contained liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen tanks and a J2 engine. It was launched into Earth orbit attached to the Command, Service, and Lunar Modules (CSM and LM). The SIVB provided the thrust to take the CSM and LM from Earth orbit into a lunar transfer orbit. After achieving trajectory towards the Moon, the LM and CSM decoupled from the SIVB at 20:35 UT on 14 November 1969 and made a course correction to head for lunar orbit. Propellants were fired to target the SIVB stage past the Moon and into solar orbit, but the stage did not go close enough to the Moon to permit escape, and it ended in a highly elliptical Earth orbit.
