HUNTSVILLE, Ala.–The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is asking for the public’s help in restoring the Saturn V vertical replica outside the Davidson Center for Space Exploration. A $1.3 million project has already started to have the Saturn V ready for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon in July.  The Rocket Center is launching a “#ReviveTheSaturnV” campaign  to raise $250,000 toward that goal.

The Saturn V replica was built in 1999 for the 30th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar mission.  After two decades the replica’s finish needs to be cleaned, primed and repainted.
