On July 30, 1990, the first Saturn was built, a red 1991 model-year Saturn SL2. The first Saturn dealership opened in Memphis, Tennessee. Saturn Corporation was launched as a "different kind of car company", and Saturn even had its own unique car models (although later models shared platforms with other GM vehicles to be more cost effective in the market), and their own dealership network that ...

The Saturn I was a rocket designed as the United States' first medium lift launch vehicle for up to 20,000-pound low Earth orbit payloads. The rocket's first stage was built as a cluster of propellant tanks engineered from older rocket tank designs, leading critics to jokingly refer to it as "Cluster's Last Stand". Its development was taken over from the Advanced Research Projects Agency in 1958 by the newly-formed civilian NASA. Its design proved sound and flexible. It was successful in initiat
The Saturn project was started as one of a number of proposals to meet a new Department of Defense requirement for a heavy-lift vehicle to orbit a new class of communications and "other" satellites. The requirements called for a vehicle capable of putting 20,000 to 40,000 pounds
Satisfied with the outcome, ARPA Order Number 14-59, dated 15 August 1958, ordered the program into existence: Initiate a development program to provide a large space vehicle booster of approximately 1,500,000-lb. thrust based on a cluster of available rocket engines. The immedia
The formation of NASA on 29 July 1958 led to an effort to collect the existing heavy-launch rocket programs and select a single set of designs for future work. At the time, both the Air Force and US Army had teams developing such vehicles, the Army's Saturn and the Air Force's Sp
The main payload of the Saturn I was the boilerplate version of the Apollo Command and Service Modules and Launch Escape System. The final three also carried Pegasus micrometeroid satellites in the second stage-spacecraft adapter. The Saturn I was considered at one time for launch of the X-20 Dyna-Soar spaceplane, and later, for launching a Gemini capsule on a proposed lunar mission. Much later, Saturn I was also considered as a short range ballistic missile system in the TABAS concept. TABAS ar
The S-I first stage was powered by eight H-1 rocket engines burning RP-1 fuel with liquid oxygen as oxidizer. The propellant tanks consisted of a central Jupiter rocket tank containing LOX, surrounded by a cluster of eight Redstone rocket tanks: four painted white, containing LOX
The S-IV stage was powered by six LOX / LH2-fueled RL10 engines, mounted on gimbals. The propellant tanks used a single, common bulkhead to separate the LOX and LH2 propellant tanks, saving 20% of structural weight along with the associated length and complexity of construction.
Saturn I Block I vehicles were guided by instruments carried in canisters on top of the S-I first stage, and included the ST-90 stabilized platform, made by Ford Instrument Company and used in the Redstone missile. These first four vehicles followed ballistic, non-orbital traject
As of 2020. there are three locations where Saturn I test vehicles are on display
Saturn býva na nočnej oblohe veľmi dobre pozorovateľný aj voľným okom, je takmer taký jasný ako Jupiter a má žltú farbu. Jeho zdanlivá hviezdna veľkosť sa pohybuje, v závislosti od aspektu, od 1,5 do -0,5 magnitúd, čím je porovnateľný s jasnejšími hviezdami. Na rozdiel od hviezd Saturn, rovnako ako iné planéty, nebliká.

The Saturn S-series was a family of compact cars from the Saturn automobile company of General Motors. Saturn pioneered the brand-wide "no haggle" sales technique. The automobile platform, the Z-body, was developed entirely in-house at Saturn, and it shared very little with the rest of the General Motors model line. It implemented a spaceframe design, which had been used on some Pontiacs during the 1980s. This meant that the side panels did not carry load and could be made of plastic instead of
The Sega Saturn is a home video game console developed by Sega and released on November 22, 1994 in Japan, May 11, 1995 in North America, and July 8, 1995 in Europe. Part of the fifth generation of video game consoles, it was the successor to the successful Sega Genesis.
The Saturn V reached 400 feet per second (120 m/s) at over 1 mile (1,600 m) in altitude. Much of the early portion of the flight was spent gaining altitude, with the required velocity coming later. The Saturn V broke the sound barrier at just over 1 minute at an altitude of between 3.45 and 4.6 miles (5.55 and 7.40 km). At this point, shock ...
Saturn 3 is a 1980 British science fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Donen, and starring Farrah Fawcett, Kirk Douglas and Harvey Keitel.The screenplay was written by Martin Amis, from a story by John Barry.
Saturn este a șasea planetă de la Soare și a doua ca mărime din Sistemul Solar, după Jupiter. Împreună cu Jupiter, Uranus și Neptun, Saturn este clasificat ca un gigant compus din gaze. Aceste planete sunt numite corpuri joviane , însemnând planete asemănătoare cu Jupiter .
