SLS vs. Saturn V processing Inside one of the Vehicle Assembly Building high bays, the Space Launch System stacking procedure (left) is similar to the one used for the Saturn V (right) during the Apollo program. In both images, the launch platform support tower is behind the rocket, facing a VAB door. The building’s transfer aisle is behind the camera.
