Rocket Test Stand No. 2, American Rocket Society (ARS), 1938-1941 Featured Print

Rocket Test Stand No. 2, American Rocket Society (ARS), 1938-1941

This is American Rocket Society (ARS) Test Stand Stand No. 2 used in ground tests of experimental rocket motors. Built in 1938, it had a thrust capacity of 200 pounds. The stand notably proved the effectiveness of James H. Wyld's regeneratively-cooled motor in tests from 1938 to 1941. This led Wyld and three other ARS members to form Reaction Motors, Inc. (RMI) in 1941, America's first commercial liquid-fuel rocket company which later built the 6000-pound thrust rocket engine for the Bell X-1 research rocket aircraft that broke the sound barrier in October 1947. The stand was last used in 1942 when loaned to RM. It then was loaned in 1953 to the ARS. It was donated to the Smithsonian in 1967 by the Reaction Motors Division, Thiokol Chemical Corp.

The upper component of the Short-Mayo Composite Aircraft Mercury, c1929 (c1937)

The upper component of the Short-Mayo Composite Aircraft Mercury undergoing flight trials at Rochester, Kent, c1929 (c1937). The Short Mayo Composite was a long-range seaplane combination produced by Short Brothers to provide a reliable long-range air transport service to the United States and the British Empire and the Commonwealth. The upper component, Mercury, was a twin-float, four-engine seaplane crewed by a single pilot and a navigator. Short Brothers were founded in 1908 in London, and were the first company in the world to make production aircraft. From Wonders of World Aviation, Vol. 1, by Clarence Winchester.
