  • Mr. Dubonnet tapped the rocket casing, and lumps of unburned propellant and ash dropped out.†   (source)
  • When the rocket took off, the propellant was so loose it just fell inward.†   (source)
  • When the propellant hissed down to completion, Mom's bathroom scale was scattered all over the pad.†   (source)
  • O'Dell chimed, and so coined our new term for the propellant.†   (source)
  • Had we already passed the critical dimension for our new propellant?†   (source)
  • Our conclusion was we didn't know what we were doing with the new propellant.†   (source)
  • "I think we've got our next rocket propellant.†   (source)
  • Next time we fly will be with a new propellant: zinc dust and sulfur.†   (source)
  • It would be a fantastic propellant, I'm sure of it!"†   (source)
  • It should be an excellent propellant.†   (source)
  • Quentin and I are going to design a sophisticated nozzle, and we need an advanced propellant to go along with it.†   (source)
  • Quentin had an idea on the propellant.†   (source)
  • It was heavy, and there wasn't much room for the propellant after the nozzle and top plug were bolted in place.†   (source)
  • This launch wasn't advertised, because we had no idea how our new propellant of saltpeter and sugar would work.†   (source)
  • When rocket propellant burned, it first produced a river of gas that flowed into the convergent section of the nozzle.†   (source)
  • "I fear the ratio of the mass of propellant added compared to the mass of the empty rocket will be too small," he said.†   (source)
  • Q, why do we need a new propellant?†   (source)
  • I showed both of them what I was doing, how I mixed the propellant, how I stood back when I threw a little of it in the heater.†   (source)
  • " "Specific impulse is defined as the thrust in pounds of a given propellant divided by its consumption rate.†   (source)
  • Loading the zincoshine was a labor-intensive process, no more than three inches of propellant compressed at a time in the casement, a drying time of four hours required for each segment.†   (source)
  • Most of the propellant had burned.†   (source)
  • We'd watch the spring with binoculars and see how much thrust was produced and then divide the answer by the pounds of propellant burned and how long it took.†   (source)
  • The series of equations we needed to work described the parameters of thrust coefficient, nozzle-throat area, combustion-chamber cross-sectional areas, and velocity of the gases predicted for any particular propellant.†   (source)
  • We need a new propellant.†   (source)
  • New propellant, sir.†   (source)
  • "It's a means of determining the relative merits of propellants.†   (source)
  • "Perhaps there's a break-even point for all propellants.†   (source)
