Merlin Rocket Engine Overview

Tom Mueller is the VP of propulsion at SpaceX (the company set to take over NASAs space transport operations) and while not a citizen scientist in the normal sense, he does provide a good of how the merlin rocket engine works. I wanted to share this presentation because amateur rocketeers are developing engines of similiar design, if not yet to the same scale as SpaceX.
