FUEL CELL FUNCTIONS DURING POST-FLIGHT TESTS

Fuel Cells

March 7, 1966

After falling approximately 36,000 feet, the Allis-Chalmers fuel cell functioned perfectly during post-flight tests. Raymond J. Chesner (left), engineer in the space and defense department of Allis-Chalmers, Milwaukee, and Lt. L.S. Harootyan of Wright-Patterson air force base, Dayton, examine the fuel cell as it looked after it was recovered, subsequent to the destruction of the rocket booster on which it was mounted. Due to a course deviation during launch last September, the booster had to be destroyed.
