Saturn V plans found: NewsChannel 19 reports that an early set of blueprints for the Saturn V rocket have been donated to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The plans, which were once the property of NASA Engineer Hans Weunscher, were saved from being thrown out with the trash by Jimmy Pemberton, who was repairing Weunscher's garage. The 1961-62 blueprints will go on display in the Center's new home for their Saturn V, expected to be completed in 2005. A spokeman from the Rocket Center is quoted as repeating the myth that "there aren't any [blueprints] left" for the Moon booster, when just around the corner, the Marshall Space Flight Center has a full set on microfilm.
