Great shot of the underside of a Saturn V (S-IC first-stage) rocket. For a sense of perspective, I once stood next to one of these laid out horizontally at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville… I estimated that I could not only easily stand inside the rim of one of the nozzles, but jump with my arms outstretched and not come close to touching the other edge of the rim.

7.6 MILLION POUNDS OF THRUST. Yeah baby.
