Speaker James R. French, JRF Consulting & AIAA Fellow
Before they lofted the Saturn launch vehicles into space and landed the Lunar Module on the Moon, the rocket engines in these vehicles had to be tested on the ground. This was first done on test stands at Santa Susanna, Inglewood, and San Juan Capistrano California before moving on to Edwards Rocket Base and NASA facilities. These original stands are mostly gone now but they appear again in the pictures of this presentation. Jim French worked on these engines and test stands and shares his memories of those days.
