SHERIDAN " The Saturn rocket project director Monday praised Pratt & Whitney Aircraft's RL-10 engine as "the great pacemaker in technology" for upper stages of tha rocket with which the U. S. plans to land a man on the moon. Dr. Oswald H. Lange. direetor : of the Saturn Systems Office' of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, lectured at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Insti- . tute Hartford Graduate Center in -South Windsor. 1 'Major Breakthrough' Dr. Lange called the RL-10 a "major breakthrough" in U.S. space efforts. The liquid hydrogen . engine develops 15.000 pounds of -thrust. It successfully completed . NASA flight rating tests at West Palm Beach, Fla., last Novem- ' her. .... Flight Soon Two RL-lOs will power the Centaur space vehicle scheduled to get its first flight aboard an Atlas "'' booster soon. Six RL-lOs will launch the sec- r jond stage of the Saturn rocket. I A single-stage Saturn was fired successfully last Oct. 27, and at least three similar shots are planned before multi-stage testa can begin. Dr. Lange said. Earliest date for a two-stage ! firing would be late 1963. he said. Dr. Lange outlined the history of the Saturn project for some 150 students and faculty members at the institute. He warned his talk "may be-a little dry." and he dwelt heavily on "hardware engineering" aspects of the project. Hampered Saturn was hampered in its early development. Dr. Lange said, by a shortage of funds and a time limit. "We were given !$10 million and asked if we could develop a booster which could get a man to the moon and back.". "We better give the answer yes . at the time," he said. As a result. Saturn has relied . heavily on proven components,-he said. H-l engines which power the rocket's first stage were pat-, terned after Thor and Jupiter ., engines, and tuei tanics wer adaptcd from Redstone and Jupiter rockets, he said. Dr. Lange showed slides and color films of the first Saturn flight and stationary engine tests. Worked on V-2 Dr. Lange. 50, is a native of Haynau, Germany. During World War II he was guidance and control director for the V-2 pro gram nd later headed the Was- serfall anti-aircraft guided mis sile program.
