Air & Space After dinner reading

Post by Mark » Fri Sep 21, 2007 1:37 am

I was just reading September's A&S tonight after walking my dogs and there was this article. I was so tired I left it on the table only after reading a page or so but it seemed worthy enough to post. I guess I'll finish it tomorrow. In the actual magazine there is a picture of a V-1 buzz bomb and the writer one time refers to it as a rocket. ha
"The rockets were simple, cheap, gas-guzzling, and extremely noisy."

But then I did like the part about how simple a pulsejet is/was. Rocket science my dogs could understand. ha again
"The expanding pressure wave forced the doggie door shut and the gases exited at the rear of the tube."
