A Titan IIIC launches while a Saturn V stands sentry. If you look closely, you’ll notice that atop the Titan is a Gemini capsule! That’s right, this is the Manned Orbital Laboratory test launch, which took place on November 3rd of 1966. Judging by that date, we can also conclude that the Saturn V pictured was SA-501, which rolled out of the Vehicle Assembly Building on August 26 of the same year. SA-501 was better known as Apollo 4, the first test flight of the Saturn V. What a historic pair of spacecraft!
