It’s stainless steel plate. Pretty much the same as some of the shiny tank trucks you see on the highway. It’s a VERY difficult finish to duplicate with any kind
of paint or foil wrap. A little different color and texture than aluminum.
Since we aren't flying today, I am doing other rocket related things today.
I really feel like I should know this already. But I don't and I cannot find an answer.
If you know, say so. I would like to see who knows the answer to my question.
But let's be honest, if you don't know, I would appreciate your honesty in stating so as well. I hope not to be only one who doesn't know.
What was the skin on the Atlas rockets made of that made them so shiny?
Thank you, gary.
