Stages to SaturnPart one of this report is intended to bring back into focus some of the facts, circumstances, and background of space exploration. A recapitulation of the flight of Apollo 11, the first lunar landing missions, provides an opportunity to introduce some of the hardware and nomenclature of the Apollo-Saturn program. An historical overview of rocketry, including the main threads of Saturn's origins, provides a background for the scope and boldness of Apollo 11 and the Saturn adventure. The management structure developed by NASA to implement the Apollo-Saturn missions is described in some detail.
