We launched a model rocket this weekend:
I was into model rockets when I was in grade school through high school so I guess this is nostalgia. Need to get one of those video camera payload rockets next and capture a video of the flight up and back down. This particular Estes rocket got lost — it went up perfectly, the parachute deployed perfectly and then in the middle of chasing after it, it disappeared. I think it landed on top of a building. Anyways, we’ve already got another one built and ready to launch… maybe this long weekend.
Need to find a bigger field here in Houston — we launched this one at Rice’s intramural fields. Suggestions?
