Hmmm - for us non-chemists, I looked up hydrazine on Google. Here is part of the first item on the search results, from Wikipedia:

), called diamidogen, archaically. A simple pnictogen hydride, it is a colorless flammable liquid with an ammonia-like odour. Hydrazine is highly toxic and dangerously unstable unless handled in solution.
ıHydrazine (antidepressant) · ıHydrazine sulfate · ıRocket propellant · ıBlowing agent


Blowing agent? So you put that in someone's drink and ... are you sure you were kidding, Cap?

My father used to be a chemist and worked for Bell Aircraft/Aerosystems for a while. He quit the job, but his friend stayed on working with hydrazine.

His friend eventually got fully disabled after it destroyed his kidneys and eventually caused his death (after many years of suffering)... nasty, nasty stuff.

Hydrazine was used to power the Space Shuttle orbiter Auxiliary Power Units (APU). These in turn powered the hydraulic pumps. When fueling the 3 hydrazine tanks crews were in SCAPE (Self Contained Atmospheric Pressurization Equipment)suits. You were fully enclosed in those things. I was a hydraulic systems engineer for the first 9 years of my time at Kennedy Space Center and we and the APU guys had the same supervisor. You did not go near that stuff without the right protective equipment.

Yes. It looks like she is making industrial-strength rocket fuel there.
