Caption

A rocket engine with a composite, as opposed to metal, nozzle on display at the Stafford Air and Space Museum in Weatherford, Oklahoma, USA. Engine nozzles have to be heat resistant, so composites that include ceramic materials are common. The distinctive lay-up markings on this nozzle show that it is a one-piece, manmade composite structure.
