Recent developments have made it possible to take high-speed X-ray photographs of rockets in action which reveal the burning propellant and the behavior of the internal components. The method presents unique possibilities for the investigation of certain rocket problems. Applications of X-ray photography have been made in a study of propellant loss in the T59 high velocity rocket grenade and in the 115-mm aircraft rocket.
