Cyclonic Rocket (circa 1930)

Illustration for article titled Cyclonic Rocket (circa 1930)

From the 1977 book Rocketship: An Incredible Journey Through Science Fiction and Science Fact:

Paul Maiwurm's fanciful Cyclonic Rocket depends on four rocket engines, unusual rotating tubular wings (wouldn't the whole vehicle tend to rotate?), scoop propellers and happy pilots. Obviously it's a California first.
