"NEW DEVELOPMENTS AND CURRENT EVENTS" Metalite has recently formed nozzles for the Boeing/Rocketdyne X-33 test program. This exciting program is designed to test many aspects of the Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) called the Venture Star. The accompanying photos show the nozzles before and after forming from the round to rectangular configuration. The parts are approximately 21" long and ¾" thick. They are made from a proprietary grade of copper. For more detailed information use the Rocketdyne/Boeing link below.
