Pump Part, Liquid Fuel Rocket, R.H. Goddard
This artifact, possibly a pump part, may have been used in the liquid-fuel experiments of American rocket pioneer Robert H. Goddard around 1930.
It was found in the Smithsonian collections, but likely was originally part of a major gift of Goddard artifacts to the Smithsonian by the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation in 1950.
