I finally had some time to download (and upload) everything. So, here are some photos and videos from our rocket outing last week - enjoy!
This was one of the early launches of the day.
R and his friend Z prepare for launch sequence.
Two catches on this one during recovery!
A and R getting ready to launch our tiny rocket.
My favorite part of this one is our friend Mark yelling, "Go Gemini!" and then R repeating it after him. :-)
This was the best one A caught on video. All three pieces came down and were recovered, including the little astronaut guy that our friend Ben had stuffed inside the rocket. Ben grabs him at the end and hands him to R.
This one is cool because the rocket was so darned big and because Ben built it himself from scratch (not a model). But - the nose cone exploded when it hit the ground. Lucky 7, we hardly knew ye!
The aftermath of the explosion.
