This is a rocket engineer's nightmare, with pipes, ducts and bypasses
piling up, in, out and around - AARRRGGHHH!
Surely (?) an old generation rocket engine in its test rig ..... but which ?
Rocketdyne's Redstone engine ..... or a very early prototype of Reaction Motor's XLR-99 X-15's engine ..... ???
Or ...... ?????
Desperation ..... !!!!!!!!!!!
The whole purpose of this series has becone confound rapier - success!
now to think of something humerus....
Hooray folks ..... be happy !
We now have an "humerus" bone collector !
Alert Scotland Yard or, if you prefer, the FBI .....
This image shows the prototype model of the second-stage liquid oxygen, liquid hydrogen, LE-5 engine for Japan's National Space Development Agency's H-I launcher. Pictured here in April 1982, the engine was to be test flown in early 1986.
