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 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.

Your NASA Apollo Saturn V Means a Lot

'I put up this display at our local school in January. The intent was to get kids excited about space again. I think it mostly worked. I didn't have the Saturn V but one of the students did and after a week of me being annoyingly persistent, she added it to the display. I would stream videos of everything on display or NSF Starbase 24/7 or any live launch that happened to be taking place during the school day. To make children aware of the admirable feats of spaceflight that humans have accomplished, I now have my own Saturn V and I intend to build a Starship model and NASA Saturn V Launch Tower to the same scale as the Saturn V before I display it at the school again. To anyone involved with SpaceX or NASA who might see this, I thank you all so much for the work you've put into exploring the universe'.
