MISSILES: Up on Solid Fuel

MISSILES: Up on Solid Fuel

I came across this short article from 1958 about Thiokols entry into the field of rocketry. I like this sentence "By 1953 Thiokol had produced solid-fuel engines, ie., basically cylinders packed with the fuel, for the first full-scale Army test missiles."

Shocking that advanced and composite solids came AFTER liquid bi-prop rockets. The latter seems much harder.
