Volume 54 #3 September 1997 Newsletter

Great news, Brian Moran has sent me a scan of Volume 54 #3 September 1997 newsletter. I’m sure glad he did since this one is a really interesting one. It covers the history of liquid propellant rocketry conducted by RRS members from 1943 to 1990. Particularly interesting are two projects. One was a project by David Crisalli, a 900 lbf thrust regenerative cooled LOX-Kerosene rocket. The second project, by David Elliot and Lee Rosenthal, was a test firing of a rocket engine that used liquid metal (NAK) and water as propellants. Now that’s an interesting combo! I’ve added the newsletter to the members section of the library.
