The outer cover of the album has minor soiling. No other flaws.

Near Fine. Item #17192

The motor segments, referred to as the solid rocket motor (SRM), and later renamed "reusable solid rocket motor" (RSRM), contained the fuel to power the SRBs.1488The SRMs/RSRMs were the largest and only human-rated solid-propellant rocket motors ever flown, and the first designed for recovery and reuse.

Background Information:
Thiokol was an American corporation concerned initially with rubber and related chemicals, and later with rocket and missile propulsion systems. Its name is a portmanteau of the Greek words for sulfur and glue, an allusion to the company's initial product, Thiokol polymer.
