The Soviet Saturn V

Here's an interesting story about the N-1, the rocket the soviets tried to go to the moon with.

Until the 1990s I'm not sure anyone had ever seen pictures of it at all. The Air & Space museum has some nice scale models of it, and there are a few documentaries floating around that have some film footage. They all blew up, at least one on the pad devastating the area.
