Cool shot! So was that an Estes rocket? I used to do that a longggggggg time ago myself. Most launches were successful but I do remember one rocket loosing a fin on takeoff and thengoing sideways for about two blocks at an altitude of around twenty feet !:shock:

why i don't clone or do more then just the standard "darkroom" functions. i sort of believe in the truth of a photo image. if it was there it stays as is within a margin of error.

Great photo, sjms!

I used to do model rocketry also.

We once duct taped a rocket engine to a skateboard (in the tradition? of Steve's minus-one-fin launch). Boy did that skateboard go!!! For a few seconds anyway.

Kinda like JATO bottles on a too-short runway!

Great to know your lil one is involved in science . My nephew will be going to a space camp this year also.

A suggested caption for your photo , respectfully submitted, given Goddard's place in rocket history...would be...

"Girl Goddard"

:idea:

i started to get into the centuri enerjet engines which were the equivelent of 4-6 estes F series engines. very heavy lifters and LOUD. now the rocketry community is challenging NASA.:-)
