Next week, March 11, ATK will do a static test fire of the QM-1 rocket motor. This is a five-segment derivative of the 4-segment Shuttle RSRM solid rocket booster. This past evening (March 5) ATK held an open house for the local community to come and take a close up look at the motor, and to get information about environmental concerns about the test (there are none, but there was someone who went bonkers a few years back…). I attended and took a number of photos of the motor and other stuff. This was one of those cases where it would have been better to get *more distance* from the subject; but you make do with what ya got.
I’ve made a bunch of these available at full resolution to APR Patreon patrons.
