NASA Saturn V Launch Umbilical Tower that was meant to be a companion set for the highly impressive and very popular #21309 or #92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V. Its challenging assembly process suitable for assembling it yourself or giving it to friend who is NASA & brick enthusiast.

The features are:

Total number of bricks & connectors: 3568

Overall height of the set: 144 studs = 1.20 meters = 3,79 feet = 44,98 inches

Platform length: 57 studs = 0.458 meters = 1.50 feet = 17.71 inches

Platform width: 47 studs = 0.378 meters = 1.19 feet = 14.52 inches

 

The functions of this set are as follows:

- The yellow control is for the rotation of the crane on its central axis either to the right or to the left

- The red control is for raising or lowering the hook

- The blue control is for the gateway's rotation during takeoff: at this time, the upper gateway with the white box, pivots to the right while the other 8 gateways are pivoting to the left.

- The green control is to go up or down with the lift, from level 0 (top of the platform) to the sixteenth floor of the crane, in the platform, there is a mechanism to stretch with two elastics the cable which makes a return trip.

You can manually:

- lift up the Damper (located at the top of the tower) during take-off, and lock or unlock the rocket so that it has maximum stability in a vertical position.

- Also, the three umbilicals (located on the base of the platform) can pivot upward to release the rocket during take-off, just like the real one.

As we all know, most rockets need to rely on the launch tower on the rocket launch pad before launch. Transmitting towers are divided into service towers and umbilical towers.

Today's protagonist umbilical tower is a fixed or backward-type tower used to support equipment such as filling gas supply pipelines and test cables.

It is responsible for supplying power, gas, and fuel to the rocket, and sending wired detection signals of the rocket and spacecraft to the ground for detection and launch control. 

The umbilical tower will automatically disconnect from all connected cables when it is launched. After it opens the movable swing arm, the rocket ignites and takes off. The whole process is like the relationship between the fetus and the umbilical cord, hence the name.

Between July 1963 and March 1965, NASA built three launch umbilical towers. Throughout its service, it was continuously modified to adapt to different tasks.
