Instrumentation for the Saturn Liquid Hydrogen Experiment
The Saturn IB Yehicle, AS-203, was launched into a nominal 185 km circular orbit on July 5, 1966 as a liquid hydrogen experiment. The primary purpose of the light was to verify the performance of the propellant control system and the J-2 engine chilldown systems of the S-IVB stage. These systems are required for the Saturn V lunar mission. Low gravity fluid behavior and heat transfer data in these areas were very limited; therefore, the liquid hydrogen experiment was required to provide date and to assure confidence in future manned efforts.
