The M1 Rocket Engine






Everyone remembers the F1 Pratt-Whitney Rocketdyne rocket engine. Famous for boosting the Saturn V rocket to the moon. But have you ever heard of the M1. It's never flown on a spacecraft but holds the record for the largest liquid fueled single chamber rocket engine ever. This motor was being developed for the successer to Apollo. The NOVA project. This program would have flown men to Mars. Check it out.

  1. These rockets should be built. Missions to mars, giant space stations, giant telescopes... we have the missions, we need the rocket.
