Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with Derek Lowe’s delightful Things I Won’t Work With series.  In at least one of the articles, he makes reference to a book titled Ignition!, by John D. Clark, on the subject of liquid rocket propellants and oxidizers doing pretty much what you’d expect them to do.  Sadly, this book is difficult to find.


Thanks to blogger Justthisguy, I’ve found a PDF copy in the Sciencemadness library (itself a great place to get lost for an afternoon).  Dancing and mad capering is called for.

      That’s about how I felt when I found it. Be sure to thank Justthisguy as well — I didn’t have the slightest clue about sciencemadness.org until I came across his post.
