Oops, made a mistake between Saturn V and Ares I...

Someday I'll pay a visit to Huntsville, it looks like an interesting place!

RTEMS is old but the Saturn V is much older. :D

Wikipedia says it was used from 1967 to 1973.  So
I was 2 years old when it first launched.  This is a
"charity plate" which means that some portion of
the extra fee was donated to the US Space and Rocket
Center Foundation to be used towards the Davidson
Saturn V Center in Huntsville where the Saturn V is located.
This is very close to OAR's offices and a source of
pride for the community.

It seemed like a good thing to do and fly my geek flag
at the same time.
