Sorry if I'm duplicating the subject, but I gotta mention what I just saw! At the Evergreen Air and Space museum, they have a M1 really big rocket motor (though suprisingly, no F1 to compare it with) and it IS really big.

Spark, please look for damn overquoting!
Posting 250 lines of previous post and adding three lines of yours not a good habit.
