Friday night topic: Amateur rocketry
My six year old ran across a very interesting aisle in the local Hobby Lobby recently. One thing led to another, and we wound up buying a cheap amateur rocket kit and doing a few launches. The last time I'd done that was in Cub Scouts long ago, when we built our own little aerodynamic disasters. 'twas fun, though, and it seems like some folks really get into the hobby, spending serious time and money on it. Are any of you guys into this stuff? Any stories from launch attempts or the like? How do you find places to launch where you won't run afoul of the law? Discuss.
