The first launch of the Saturn V rocket was in Nov of 1967. One year later, they sent men around the moon in one. Six months after that, they sent men to land on the moon in one.
We went from testing the most complex machine ever built to make sure it would work to landing human beings on the mo...

Looking at all the awesome movies in the Arnold thread. I miss action movies of the 80's-90's. In my opinion, the genre has kinda died in the 2000's.
