Detail of the Ascent Propulsion System injector.

For this picture, a fellow from GRC's Community Relations was kind enough to rotate the engine so that I could have better access to the interior of the engine. While there was a spotlight shining on the top of the engine, the auditorium itself has a fairly low light level. For these pictures, too, I was essentially "shooting blind." I tried to angle the camera so that the flash hit different parts of the injector (refer to the bare thrust chamber at the Air Zoo to compare the width of the throat to the width of the injector).

Picture 1 of 4.
