    Rockets Of The World

    I can't find a bigger version and so the text is a bit small. However I thought it of enough interest to post as it is here.



    Edit: Link to larger image [text is clearer]

    Link: Rockets Of The Word Large Image

    May take a while to download.

    Also, missing Spacex's 'Falcon 1' and 'Falcon 9'. The latter is around the length of the Soyoz rockets (178ft) and the prior is a dinky little thing of 70ft.

    On the first picture, third from right in the bottom row, the Saturn 3... I saw one of those launch, taking the second Skylab crew up. What a NOISE! We were several miles from the pad in a VIP bit, and the ground was shaking, and it felt like your chest was going to collapse. I thought they were closer in size to the Saturn 5... that would have been (more) awesome to see!
