View of the engine's heat exchanger and steam duct.

Steam from the steam generator powers the turbopumps, then is routed through this heat exchanger (which heats gasses to pressurize the propellant tanks) and then is dumped overboard via this steam duct.

This photo was taken when the engine was located in Space Hall.
