Notes
  • Significance: The Redstone Interim Test Stand, in use from 1953 to 1961, was developed by Dr. Wernher von Braun and associates to test the Redstone rocket propulsion system. Constructed for $25,000 out of materials salvaged from the Redstone Arsenal, the Interim Test Stand accommodated 362 static tests, including 200 that led directly to improvements in the Redstone rocket for the Mercury manned flight program. Adapted over the years to new rocket developments, the Interim Test Stand never experienced the progressive growth in size and cost that typified test stands in general, remaining a modest but effective testament to the engineering ingenuity of the rocket pioneers.
