In this video we go through the process of machining a cold gas thruster for our reaction control system (RCS) demonstrator. Mostly a manual lathe operation, apart from the last step which is made on a mill. Similar nozzles, with a much bigger expansion ratio will stabilize and orientate our homemade space capsule and volunteer astronaut in space, once the Spica space capsule separates from the main rocket booster.
