Aerojet Rocketdyne Delta Clipper Workers Named to Int’l Space Hall of Fame; Warren Boley Comments

aerojet rocketdyneForty current and former Aerojet Rocketdyne employees have been selected to the International Space Hall of Fame for their contributions to a launch vehicle system development program.

Delta Clipper Experimental was an unmanned single-stage-to-orbit spacecraft built in the 1990s to demonstrate vertical takeoff and landing, subsonic maneuvers and space vehicle reusability, Aerojet Rocketdyne said Monday.

“It was the result of a team effort that included industry, government, consultants, individual supporters and support groups from around the world,” said Warren Boley, president of Aerojet Rocketdyne.

“This is a tremendous honor for everyone involved in the DC-X/DC-XA team,” Boley added.

The vehicle recorded 12 flights under separate programs run by McDonnell Douglas and NASA.

Aerojet Rocketdyne’s DC-X/DC-XA workers were inducted at an ISHF ceremony held Saturday at New Mexico State University in Alamogordo.
