American Rocket Society

 

Founded in 1930. In 1933 it devised a liquid fuel rocket engine; upon launching, a rocket with this engine reached an altitude of 76 meters. In 1935 the society constructed a test stand and began regular tests of various rocket engines. In 1939–40 two liquid-fuel rocket engines with regenerative cooling were built. In 1944 a rocket with four nozzles was tested. During the war experimental work was suspended. The American Rocket Society is a large organization devoted to problems of controlled rockets and space flight. It holds yearly meetings which are accompanied by displays of rockets and rocket equipment.
