When NASA was looking to go back to the moon, they did consider bringing back the Saturn V rocket and the Rocketdyne F-1 engines. However, that would have meant going back to decades old technology and working practices, something that just isn’t possible today. But in the last decade, 3D printing of metal parts has advanced greatly, and now it is possible to make far more advanced versions of both engines and complete rockets. So, in this video, we look at if NASA could 3D print a new modern version of the F-1 engine.
