Hazard Studies with Hydrogen and Oxygen in the Liquid and Solid Phases
There are many undetermined hazards associated with the use of the cryogenic hydrogen-oxygen propellant system at low pressures equivalent to high altitudes. Among these hazards are those which may be associated with rupture of tanks or feed lines, leakage, or venting. The conditioning and chilldown of systems during the preignition stages of engine operation provide other potentially dangerous situations.
