Explorer XXXIII Gallery


Overall view of the main body of the satellite.

It would appear that there's a solid rocket motor affixed to the bottom of the satellite, with the spherical body, conical nozzle, and silver and red igniters located approximately 180° apart at the base of the nozzle; overall, it looks a lot like a Gemini retro motor.
