Not HPR, but just cool rocket pictures
Honest John test firing at White Sands.
Plumes near the front are spin motors to help stabilize
and to improve acuracy.
MORE FIRE BETTER
Nike Hercules test at White Sands.
Motors are double base and most of
the "smoke" is really just dust.
Even the big boys have recovery problems.
All was OK in the end. Things like this did not make the news then.
ULTIMATE CHUCK AND DUCK
Davy Crockett Nuke.
The recoil-less rifle would lob the bomb about 1.5 miles and then BOOM.
You are inside the blast zone.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
Bad day at the Cape. This was an unmanned test flight of the Mercury Redstone, note the tanks are full and venting. The escape tower fired by an electrical problem.
