Description

Apollo Program: Command Module Reaction Control System Rocketdyne SE-8 Rocket Engine. An 11.5" tall liquid rocket, pressure-fed engine, model SE8-4, weighing approximately eight pounds. The Rocketdyne label bears the following information: Part Number "106009", Contract Number "IDWA 6502", Customer Part Number "ME901-0067-0010", and Customer Serial Number "063600844104". There are numerous other numbers and inspector's stamps found on the unit. Fuel and oxidizer valve assemblies are present at top along with the electrical wiring harness. Twelve of these engines were installed on the Apollo command module; they utilized the propellants Nitrogen Tetroxide (N2O4) Monomethylydrazine (MMH) as fuel. SE-8s were integrated on the CM in two systems of six engines and provided it with rotation control, rate damping, and attitude control after its separation from the Service Module and during reentry. First one of these Heritage has offered. Appears to have been test fired but is not flown. Fine condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
