Angela, a student of Ms. Parnell has pointed our browser in the direction of another excellent page with a lot of great information and related links for anybody interested in checking out model rocketry. We particularly liked the part about the 13th century origins and "arrows of fire"...many links to straightforward articles on the safety, science and experiences of model rocketeers and links to plans for models that you can't get in stores anymore. Thank you Angela! Ceiling unlimited!
Ms. Ward, a teacher in Delaware has managed to evade our security team on behalf of one of her students. Rachel came across this very page in research that the class was doing on Science Hobbies. We are flattered to be credited as a source of useful information in the field... And seeing as this internet thing looks like it's catching on, Rachel sends along this link:
"A Kid's Space Center - Fun With Model Rockets"
It has an excellent article about the history of Model Rocketry and more links to more articles (with more links to other links, linked to other articles) and many very cool safe rocketry activities that can be done with stuff that's just hangin out around the house. Thank you Rachel and may your center of gravity always be ahead of your center of pressure.
