A 1/20th-scale model of first-stage Saturn is prepared for testing in the 16-foot transonic wind tunnel at Arnold Air Force Base in the early 1960s. The purpose of the testing was to study base heating encountered by the space booster’s first stage as it accelerated to supersonic speeds and out of the earth’s atmosphere. (U.S. Air Force photo)
