    Saturn V Moon Rocket Liquid Hydrogen Resilient Propellant Duct Mount. A large 15" x 15.5" x 4" overall, this rocket part was made by Robinson Vibrashock of Teterboro, New Jersey. It bears a NASA George C. Marshall Space Flight Center aluminum plate containing the following information: "MOUNT, RESILIENT, LH2 PROPELLANT DUCT/ ASS'Y NO. K2229-4/ DAC SPEC 1A74710-1/ CONTR NO. NAS 7-101/ SER NO. 12/ DATE 5-2-64" Above this plate is stamped "SOURCE CONTROL NUMBER 1A97075-1". There are inspection stamps and on the other side of the part, a slightly different source number "1A97075-8". Very rare, a great opportunity to own a part of this venerable rocket series that launched all nine manned missions to the moon. Very fine condition.

    Because of the extraordinary pressures and temperatures which the powerful Rocketdyne F-1 engine developed, all thrust-related components would move, expanding and contracting during launch as temperatures ranged from cryogenic through 4700°F. Multiple ways to hold ducting were tried early in the space program with this stainless steel mesh proving very effective; it allowed expansion of bellowed assemblies and would not "freeze and grab" during engine operation.
