Rocket Building


Rocket Building

The family trotted out to the park just as the sun was going down and found a dry spot in the middle of the park. We set the rocket launch pad down, unraveled the launcher wires, attached the clamps to the engine igniter, and prepared for takeoff.

We stepped back and hit the launch button, but nothing happened. We thought we were missing a piece so carol ran back home to pick it up. Meanwhile, adolfo, paola and i were tinkering around with the launch while it was still connected to the rocket and WOOSH!

The rocket blasted off the lauch pad and towards the clouds. It was exeptionally cloudy, and i half expected the rocket to make it behind the clouds, but it peaked and shot the nose cone out and fell gently to the ground.
