This is a cutaway of the Radiamic liquid-fuel thruster developed in 1965 as a small auxiliary rocket engine. The C-1, or “Common Engine,” was developed for launch vehicles and spacecraft control systems. It could generate about 45 kilograms (100 pounds) of thrust. NASA never placed it into service.
