1960’s NASA PR lithograph for the S-IVb stage.

    Interesting how they say “Saturn I” throughout (except for one reference to “Uprated Saturn I”) since the S-IVb (a name that doesn’t appear in the lithograph, at least the part shown) was the second stage of the “Uprated Saturn I”, a/k/a Saturn Ib (the S-IV, with 6 RL-10s instead of a J-2 was the Saturn I second stage).

    I vote for the Saturn 1B as the most beautiful (ok, visually appealing) launch vehicle ever.

    Old number 7 is attractive in a sort of 50s classic way, but the bare metal version of the Proton is gorgeous.
