Double Exposure
Double Exposure

This deliberate double exposure illustrates the comparative sizes and configurations of the Skylab 1 and 2 Space Vehicles at Launch Complex 39 at the Kennedy Space Center, as they sat on the launch pads in 1973. The double exposure creates an illusion that the rockets are side by side, although actually they are 1 1/2 miles apart. The SL-1/Saturn V Space Vehicle on Pad A is on the left. On the right is the SL-2/Saturn 1B Space Vehicle on Pad B.
