George W.S. Abbey Rocket Park

NASA to Dedicate, Rename Rocket Park for Former Director George Abbey

"Media are invited to attend the dedication of Rocket Park at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston for former director George W.S. Abbey in a ceremony at 10 a.m. CST Friday, Dec. 10. Home to one of only three Saturn V rockets on display in the world, the facility will now be known as George W.S. Abbey Rocket Park. The Apollo rocket housed inside a protective building there is the only one comprised of all flight-certified hardware capable entering orbit around the Moon. The 36-story Saturn V was restored over the course of two years, from 2005 to 2007, and has been on loan to Johnson from the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum collection since 1977. Outside, additional artifacts from the early human spaceflight program are on display."
