Astronomy Fun Fact #95

As of 2019, the heaviest thing humans have ever launched into space is the Saturn V rocket, which carried the Apollo Lunar Module.

Saturn V itself was more than 350 long and weighed more than 6,500,000 pounds! And it was powerful enough to carry an additional 300,000 pounds with it into space!

That's a HUGE rocket, and we haven't launched anything that large since 1969
