Neil Armstrong at Bloodhound SSC

A reader points me to this item about Neil Armstrong visiting the BLOODHOUND land speed record project in Bristol, UK: Neil Armstrong visits the BLOODHOUND Technical Centre – Bloodhound SSC.

Armstrong was quite interested in the propulsion system, which combines a jet engine with a hybrid rocket that uses HTP as the oxidizer and a synthetic rubber (HTPB) as the fuel.

They have recently begun to build the vehicle: BLOODHOUND reaches major milestone –build begins – BLOODHOUND SSC.
