Gallery: Behind the scenes at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center

Ars Technica » Scientific Method 2013-04-22

Ars spent the better part of a week at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Alabama, gathering material for our pieces on the Saturn V's F-1 resurrection and testing and the new F-1B rocket engine that's being developed right now. In the process, we got to peek into a number of different areas of MSFC not open to the general public, including manufacturing, training, and operations areas. I took over a thousand photographs over the time I was there, and couldn't resist showing them off. Below are the 40 best images from our tour of Marshall, the birthplace of the Saturn V rocket and the place where NASA's latest launch vehicle is being designed.
