(almost) Everything is air cooled. The thing that cools the water is air.

BTW- Isn't it funny that we call that part a radiator when it primarily moves heat via conduction and convection? It barely radiates heat, and mostly convects it. We should call it a convectorator.

Anyhow, cool engine... and holy smokes, 800,000 horsepower. The space shuttle is something like 44 million. I once estimated that 6 space shuttles running continuously would produce the electrical demand of the US. The Saturn V is 160 million horsepower.
