The Saturn INT-21 was an American orbital launch vehicle of the 1970s. It was derived from the Saturn V rocket, used for the Apollo program, and is commonly mistaken for the Saturn V. It was only launched once, from Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, carrying the Skylab space station into orbit, at 17:50 GMT, on May 14, 1973. It was intended to be used for other flights in the Apollo Applications Program, and would have also been used to launch other American space stations, including Skylab B, the S-IVB Dry Workshop, and the S-II Wet Workshop.

The INT-21 and Saturn V have common first and second stages, but they differ in that the INT-21 lacked a third stage. It was also intended to have the instrumentation fitted atop the second stage, but by the time the rocket was actually built, it had been moved to a position atop the payload.
