A detail of the forward part of the thrust chamber.

The two sections of tubing at the top appear to be the heat exchanger helium and gaseous oxygen supply lines.

The pegs sticking out from the various tabs are used to support the engine's thermal insulation.

Toward the left of the picture, note where the tubes comprising the thrust chamber are "bifurcated", or split in two.
