Default APOD Features a Rocket Launch

The first launch at Cape Canaveral.


In addition, NASA was born 60 years ago today.

What a great photo. That gantry appears to be just standard 5' x5' ladder frame scaffolding.

That is a great picture. I did not realize the first launch at Cape Canaveral was a V-2 launch.
