Thor-Able II



Written and Edited by Cliff Lethbridge


Classification: Research Rocket

Length: 90 feet

Diameter: 8 feet


Identical to the Thor-Able, Thor-Able II was simply the name given to the version of the Thor-Able which was used for high-altitude re-entry vehicle testing. The vehicle was not used to launch satellites.

The name distinguished the Thor-Able II from its satellite-bearing relative, Thor-Able I.
