J-2 Engine J-2111

Behind Building 4205 sits the bare thrust chamber from J-2 rocket engine J-2111. Saturn documents that this engine was fired 11 separate times (for a cumulative total of 1282.1 seconds) and served as a spare for the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project before being stripped of its components in support of the XRS-2200 (linear aerospike) program.

When I visited in July 2009, this engine was on a transport dolly. It would seem that, in 2009, it had been outdoors a relatively short time, as its ID plate was still in pretty good shape. Three years of being outdoors in the Alabama sun has taken its toll on the ID plate.

As of now, I have not yet sorted through all of my pictures of the J-2111 thrust chamber, but some other page references this location. Thus, this is a "place holder" version right now, with only the pictures actually referenced. Come back some time later to see if I've finished up, or drop me an email to request me to prioritize the rest of these pictures.
