No they still do it.
My best friends wife is an engineer at JSC (Johnson Space Center). They've been to several launches.
Those people are at the VIP viewing center next to the Saturn V exhibit at Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island
About 3 miles from Pad 39A.
Have you ever seen a Saturn V rocket close up?
Amazing what engineers and scientists can come up with.
Several stories high and nothing but fuel with a little tiny capsule on top.
Mercury rockets by comparison look like little toys.
