  Saturn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Saturn's shape is visibly flattened at the poles and bulging at the equator (an oblate spheroid); its equatorial and polar diameters vary by almost 10% (120,536 km vs. 108,728 km).
Saturn's interior is similar to Jupiter's, having a rocky core at the center, a liquid metallic hydrogen layer above that, and a molecular hydrogen layer above that.
Saturn appears to the naked eye in the night sky as a bright, yellowish star varying usually between magnitude +1 and 0 and takes approximately 29 and a half years to make a complete circuit of the ecliptic against the background constellations of the zodiac.

 Saturn V - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Saturn I was in development, but had not yet flown, and due to its small size, it would require several launches to place in orbit all the components of a lunar spacecraft.
The Soviet counterpart of the Saturn V was the N-1 rocket.
Saturn V was also to be the launch vehicle for the nuclear rocket stage RIFT test program and the later NERVA.

 Sega Saturn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Sega Saturn (Japanese: セガサターン, Sega Saturn), a video game console of the 32-bit era, was released on November 22, 1994, in Japan and May 1995 in the United States; 170,000 machines were sold the first day of the Japanese launch.
From a development standpoint the architectural design problems of the Saturn meant that it quickly started losing out on third party support to the PlayStation; the main disadvantage of the Sega Saturn compared to the PlayStation was the lack of more flexible and correctly functioning hardware-aided transparency.
Japanese Saturn software usually comes packaged in a standard CD jewel case, often with a spinecard - a three-fold pieces of light cardboard that hugs the spine of the jewel case and is held in place by the overall shrinkwrap.

Shawcross said the Saturn 5 blueprints are held at the Marshall Space Flight Center on microfilm.
"The problem in recreating the Saturn 5 is not finding the drawings, it is finding vendors who can supply mid-1960's vintage hardware," he wrote, "and the fact that the launch pads and vehicle assembly buildings have been converted to space shuttle use, so you have no place to launch from.
In years past, rumors have abounded that in the 1970s the White House or Congress had the Saturn 5 plans destroyed "to prevent the technology from falling into the wrong hands".

NASA Associate Administrator for Manned Space Flight, Dr. George Mueller, said the new schedule and alternative plans provide a schedule under which a limited number of Apollo command and service modules and lunar landing modules configured for lunar landing may be launched on test flights toward the Moon by the end of the decade.
In the revised Apollo schedule, command, service, and lunar modules will be tested and qualified on concurrent unmanned flights of the Uprated Saturn and Saturn 5 launch vehicles.
It is possible that the lunar landing could be made on the Apollo/Saturn 509 but it is also possible that it may be delayed until one of the remaining six Saturn 5 flights.

NASA announced a simplified terminology for the Saturn booster series: Saturn C-1 became "Saturn I," Saturn C-1B became "Saturn IB," and Saturn C-5 became "Saturn V." References: 16.

 MSN Encarta - Print Preview - Rocket (physics)
The amount of thrust developed by a rocket motor depends mainly on two factors, the velocity with which the burning gases leave the combustion chamber, and the mass of the burning gases.
Rockets may be divided into two principal classes, solid-propellant rockets, such as intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), and liquid-propellant rockets, such as the Saturn 5 space booster (See Guided Missiles).
In both types of rockets, the combustion chamber in which the fuel burns is called the motor.

Some even allege that NASA destroyed the blueprints for the Saturn 5, a claim that is nothing more than an urban legend, albeit a remarkably long-lived one.
While no one is seriously considering resurrecting the Saturn 5, the plans on the drawing board now range from upgraded EELVs to shuttle-derived vehicles to “clean sheet” designs that could rival the Saturn 5 in capability.
The Saturn 5 was also not cheap to operate: the same source pegs the launch cost of a single Saturn 5 at $431 million in 1967, or over $2.4 billion a launch in 2004 dollars.
