Pratt and Whitney Rocketdyne have a great time-lapse video showing the construction of the J-2X rocket motor.  Earlier versions of this motor carried astronauts to the moon on the Apollo missions and have been used for heavy lifting since.  Descendents of this motor will be on the new NASA SLS (Space Launch System).
