Weaving high-tech fabrics of the future
This device is a textile component of a rocket engine turbopump. It is lighter and more efficient than a metal version would be, the museum's Web site says, and it can function in temperatures of up to 1,500 degrees Celsius. It was designed by Williams International and developed by Foster-Miller for the U.S. Air Force.
