THE complex problems of lubrication of high energy rocket energy pumps are further complicated by operation parameters, nature of the pumped fluid and space‐vehicle environment. The lubrication must suffice for the total mission period. It must be cryogenic operative. Moreover, critically reactive liquified gases must be pumped without consuming the lubricant in chemical reaction. Lubrication, sealing and containment materials must be compatable with the propellant oxidiser.
