Quick question, but on the Clavius site you show images of hypergolic fuels burning in test chambers and in space, clearly showing the 'plasma' glow.
There is a picture of the Apollo hypergolics being tested on Earth, with the red gas being produced. I think it is the photo Kaysing refers too in his capacity as a technical expert on rocket engines.
(1) Do you know the photo I am referring too? (2) If so, then can you provide a link as for the life of me I cannot find it now I need it. (3) Is the red gas oxidation of the fuel or the oxidiser? I thought it was the N2O4, but would that mean the engine is running oxidiser rich?
