Rocketry:

October Skies are here! With them comes my celebration of the hobby of model rocketry. You can toggle forward with the link at the bottom of the page. There will be one image posted each day in October with a description. Enjoy!

I am excited to inform you of an upcoming event;

November 9, 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the launch of the first Saturn V rocket. This is the vehicle that propelled humans to the surface of the Moon. The Saturn V remains the largest rocket yet to leave Earth's atmosphere. For the occasion, my NAR section is creating and hosting a special event at Goddard Space Flight Visitors' Center on Sunday, November 5, 2017. The rocket launch begins at 1 pm, and will include demonstration launches of Saturn V models. The educational program will begin around 2:45 pm. This event is free to the public.

I have compiled a document of facts about the Saturn V and its launch history for this event. If you are curious about the history of space flight, download it here;

Aim for the sky. Try not to miss,
