  • High Powered Rocket Propellant Test This is a short video of a new rocket propellant I came up with. The main ingredient is your basic high grade Ammonium Perchlorate. The other ingredients are proprietary for or at least until I can find out if it has been used before or is currently being used. I had way too much aluminum in this batch and it ended up being ridden with a lot of slag and not a very clean burn - while very hot I don't think it would be very good for propulsion. When making your rocket formulations, make sure you know where your chemicals are coming from and insist on american made (not chinese) products. While China might be cheap, remember - it's cheap! There are reasons for this. If you play around with chemicals that might be tainted with other things, you could end up with one serious accidental explosion (See Nevada AP factory explosion here on YouTube to see what I'm talking about). Ammonium Perchlorate, Potassium Chlorate, Potassium Perchlorate and other powerful oxidizers are not things to play with! If you have any questions, feel free to write me. I work with model rockets for fun and science. I also belong to the Music City Missile Club and encourage anyone interested in rocketry to join a local club to learn more about this exciting hobby. I will not 'teach' you how to make things explode nor will I tell you where to buy chemicals, so please don't ask.

  • GasGun Animation.mov Visit for more info. This is an animation of a well stimulation performed with the use of a GasGun propellant stimulation tool. In this example, the GasGun tool is conveyed into the well on wireline, but it can also be run on conventional tubing or coil tubing. The GasGun is a solid-propellant well-stimulation device based on proprietary ballistic technology from the US military. It incorporates the most advanced design on the market with the use of progressively burning propellants that have been proven by independent research to be many times more effective in creating fractures and increasing formation permeability. The GasGun uses solid propellant, often referred to as a low explosive, to generate high pressure gas at a rapid rate. The rate is tailored to the formation characteristics to be rapid enough to create multiple fractures radiating 10 to 50 feet from the wellbore, but not so rapid as to pulverize and compact the rock as is experienced for classic high explosives such as nitroglycerine. The star-shaped pattern of multiple fractures removes wellbore damage or blockage and increases the formation permeability near the wellbore.
  • Saturn V Rocket - Walk Around The Saturn V was the largest operational launch vehicle ever produced. Standing over 363 feet high with its Apollo Spacecraft payload, It was designed under the supervision of the rocket man, Wernher von Braun, and was chosen in 1963 from a list of potential systems proposed to make good President Kennedy's promise that a man would visit the moon within a decade. The Saturn V located at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas was completely restore by the Smithsonian Institute. Dedication date: July 20, 2007. Saturn V size: 111 meters (363 ft) Payload to orbit: 129300 kg (285000 lb) Payload to Moon: 48500 kg (107000 lb) 1st stage: Five F-1 engines built by Boeing Propellants: RP-1 (kerosene) and liquid oxygen Total thrust: 3360000 newtons (7500000 lb) The five F-1 engines equal 160000000 horsepower, about double the amount of potential hydroelectric power that would be available at any given moment if all the moving waters of North America were channeled through turbines. 2nd stage: Five J-2 engines built by Rocketdyne Propellants: Liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen Total thrust: 5560000 newtons (1250000 lb) 3rd stage: One J-2 engine built by Rocketdyne Thrust: 1112000 newtons (250000 lb) The ratio of propellant to payload in Saturn V is 50 to 1.

  • Environmental Aeroscience - Aerospike Nozzle Solid Rocket Motor Static Firing eAc (Environmental Aeroscience Corp) developed and fired the first solid propellant Aerospike motor in 2003. Aerospike nozzles are designed to be altitude compensating and self adjust the expansion ratio making them extremely useful for ground-launched sounding rockets. This feature is specifically useful for long burn hybrid rocket applications. Several design verification tests firings using short burn solid propellants, with the goal of applying the technology to the long burn Hybrid motors.
  • China Low Tech: 'Ancient Giant', the largest and heaviest rocket blasts off [ITN] China is set to launch a space module on board a huge ten-minute rocket. Rocket engine From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia RS-68 being tested at NASA's Stennis Space Center. The nearly transparent exhaust is due to this engine's exhaust being mostly superheated steam (water vapor from its propellants, hydrogen and oxygen) Viking 5C rocket engine For reaction engines not possessing a de Laval nozzle, see reaction engine. A rocket engine, or simply "rocket", is a jet engine[1] that uses only propellant mass for forming its high speed propulsive jet. Rocket engines are reaction engines and obtain thrust in accordance with Newton's third law. Since they need no external material to form their jet, rocket engines can be used for spacecraft propulsion as well as terrestrial uses, such as missiles. Most rocket engines are internal combustion engines, although non combusting forms also exist. Rocket engines as a group have the highest exhaust velocities, are by far the lightest, but are the least propellant efficient of all types of jet engines.

  • Electrically-Powered Spacecraft Propulsion. An electrically powered spacecraft propulsion system is any of a number of forms of electric motors which spacecraft can employ to gain mechanical energy in outer space. Most of these kinds of spacecraft propulsion work by electrically powering propellant to high speed, but electrodynamic tethers work by interacting with a planet's magnetosphere. Electric thrusters typically offer much higher specific impulse, however, due to practical power source constraints thrust is weaker compared to chemical thrusters by several orders of magnitude. Russian satellites have used electric propulsion for decades, and newer Western geo-orbiting spacecraft are starting to use them for north-south stationkeeping. This type of rocket-like reaction engine uses electric energy to obtain thrust from propellant carried with the vehicle. Unlike rocket engines, these kinds of engines do not necessarily have rocket nozzles, and thus many types are not considered true rockets. Electric propulsion thrusters for spacecraft are usually grouped in three families based on the type of force used to accelerate the ions of the plasma: The electrothermal category groups the devices where electromagnetic fields are used to generate a plasma to increase the heat of the bulk propellant. The thermal energy imparted to the propellant gas is then converted into kinetic energy by a nozzle of either solid material or magnetic fields. Low molecular weight gases (eg hydrogen, helium, ammonia) are preferred ...

  • ChicoraTankHydroFail.mov Hydro testing of sample Chicora propellant tank. 6061-T6 aluminum tube, .125" wall thickness, 8" diameter, 16" long. Welded to tank ends. Working pressure 500 PSI. Hoped to get to 625 PSI, but weld had hardly any penetration and let go just north of 400 PSI. Weld was so poor the underlying material wasn't torn, just the filler parted. We'll cut an inch off the ends, chamfer the tube and tank caps, then go for a full penetration weld. That's why we have a test tank - and 2 more to be used later for LOX and LPG propellants. And yes, my math in the verbal commentary is bad - 625 PSI is 25% safety factor for 500 PSI operating pressure, and 750 PSI would be a 50% safety factor. I'm surprised the thing held to over 400 psi with just the strength of a thin section of 4043 filler metal holding the pieces together. Guess I shouldn't have made such a big deal about keeping the heat down into the base metal - there was barely any base metal fusion at all. :-(
