Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 17)


Cryogenic loading of the huge Saturn V booster begins eight hours before the scheduled lift-off. The first three hours of fueling is the cold hydrogen gas conditioning of the S-II stage fuel tank. Then in one hour and thirty minutes approximately 340,000 gal of liquid hydrogen is loaded into the S-II and S-IVB fuel tanks.
