Rotary valve could help propel craft to Mars one day

A rotary fuel delivery valve developed by a UAHuntsville team led by Dr. James Blackmon just might help us get manned space flights out of our immediate neighborhood one day, and he says it could have practical terrestrial applications. Dr. Blackmon, a principal research engineer at the university's Propulsion Research Center, figures that to travel to places like Mars and beyond we'll first have to decide what kind of fuel delivery system we'll use to feed the rocket engines and then we'll have to determine how we're going to rebuild or maintain that system during long stays in space. That's where the new valve comes in.
