$GHM $SPCE $ASTR $SATS $VSAT Key excerpt about Graham's (GHM) expansion into the space industry (read today's CC):thinkandpick, published August 11, 2021
"Theodore O'Neill: So first question, in your slide presentation you used an image of the Blue Origin New Shepard reusable launch vehicle. Can you give us a little more detail on Graham's opportunity in space development programs?
Dan Thoren: Yeah. Barber-Nichols is involved in quite a few different new space as well as existing space applications. And so historically, we've been involved in the propulsion side. So rocket engine turbo pumps, the pumps that basically take the fuel out of the tanks and supply it to the combustion chamber to provide propulsion.
We're seeing more-and-more applications for the next journey in space. So you worry about launch first. And then, you worry about or think about living in space or operating in space second. And so, we're starting to get more opportunities for Turbomachinery, fluid and power systems for space-based vehicles."
