Date: Sat, 15 Feb 1997 13:25:57 -0700 Subject: Railroad tracks at Jackass Flats--FYI In answer to someone's query about tracks at Jackass Flats, yes there are tracks there. They were used to move the rocket engine from the assembly-disassembly buildings out to the test pad. When I worked there in early to mid 60s, the project wasn't a ram jet, but a nuclear powered rocket engine using lhydrogen as the fuel. (The hydrogen was heated by the reactor, then run to the rocket engine.)
