Something about rocketry
Perhaps you have heard about it, and maybe you wondered what a strange activity this may be. Model rocketry, also known as space modelling, is a type of aero-modelling which consists of building and flying models representing missiles and launchers. These models fly only vertically and are recovered by a parachute so as to be able to fly again for an infinite number of times. They are propelled by commercial mini rocket engines, extremely safe and intended only for this hobby.
How are these model rockets made?
Model rockets are made with usual modeling techniques, using only lightweight materials such as cardboard, balsa, or plywood.
