That's the nipple of a female model terminator.


Actually, I bet it's the nose cone of one flying machine or another.

At first, I thought it was a mushroom. Now I think it's a bullet hitting something.

To me, it looks like a very bad chandelier.

it looks like a shower head, or a sprinkler for flowers to me. Or a spray jet for his hot tub!

It looks like you're looking up an exhaust duct. That hole pattern is seriously looking like a combustor section though. Perhaps an afterburner flameholder of some kind?

Haven't yet read the thread. The picture looks like a trash can or a manhole.

Why aren't you posting this stuff in the Brain Teasers forum?

'Cause it's not what I consider a brain teaser?

Humm... Maybe it is???

Aha, rocket engine exhaust nozzle? I almost had a stab at that after your "look up" clue, but thought it must still have been GT related.

Yep, that is looking right into the business end of the Titan Rockect engine, so it is indeed a combustion chamber with fuel feed nozzles visible in the back.

Which are the fuel feed nozzles? I'd have expected them to look like the kind of swirl atomisers you get in a GT engine, although I suppose the fuel is ready-mixed so this isn't as important? Don't know nearly enough about rockets...
