Liquid-Solid Mixtures of Hydrogen Near the Triple Point
Space vehicle fueling using liquid hydrogen and a suitable oxidizer is, at the present time, an accomplished fact. Such vehicles as the Saturn and Centaur incorporate highly sophisticated systems for the combination of hydrogen and oxygen in order to realize the potential high specific thrust of this fuel. The production, storage, and transport of the liquid hydrogen fuel are also highly developed and are no longer considered a major problem.
