The full-size mock-up of the RD-108 liquid rocket engine for the R-7 missile and the Soyuz spacecraft. An engine of this type was created by Valentin Glushko in 1957: he launched automatic stations and manned spacecraft. The four-chamber engine was fed with a mixture of kerosene and liquid oxygen. Its numerous variations have been used to this day, while certifying the high quality of the project.
