     Hello list,

     Check out http://www.FoundCollection.com/~breck/rattmot1.htm, I finally
got this on a web page.  It was sucessfully static tested and flown on
April 14, 1996 at the Mojave Test Area (MTA).  I left out deminsions for
proprietary reasons, there is still alot of testing to be done, but maybe
some day it will be ready for Hi-power use.  Imagine, nothing else to buy
but the fuel.  The propellents are loaded through the injector, the fuel
is denatured *** and the oxidizer is Nitrous oxide which is loaded
remotely, of course.

I'm working on nuclear experimental motors. All you need is
a lead suite. With the proper safe distance, this plan should
be just about as safe as yours. But the best part is that the BATF
currently does not regulate nuclear powered motors!

                Henry,

  If your successful,I believe you will have a much better product than
anyones. Since aircraft carriers only refuel every 20 or so years all
you would ever need is one motor for All your rockets. An added
advantage is that if you ever lost one, all you would need to find it is
a geiger counter. So what if you glow green a little while after launch.
You have to give something to get something...right? Put me down for 1
of the first production models. When Estes and the others find out what
your up to they will try to buy you out but hold out for the big bucks
and you'll be rich. I bet they will even fly through that weather system
we were talking about the other day!

  Don't you just love this country? In the mean time...

I'd really look forward to seeing a liquid bipropellant motor certified
for HPR flight, though the size might be an issue in this case.  Any
chance of downsizing it to 54mm O.D. to fit standard HPR motor mounts in
the process of commercializing?

You might want to call your local NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission)
office and see what restrictions THEY have for storage before you get
too happy with this :)

Nope... Just the NRC. <g>
