3, 2, 1, we have lift-off! December 9, 2006

Posted by Joe in Scouts.

Over the past few weeks in cub scouts, we’ve been building a rocketship. This is not the rubberband and propeller driven model of last year. No this year we opted to build a real rocket. This year’s model has a real engine with solid fuel propulsion.

To Benjamin’s slight disappointment, though, it was not a life-sized vehicle that would propell into in low earth orbit. Last Saturday, we had the launch.

These models go skyward approximately 1000 feet in about 3 seconds.
