This picture says it all. The man was nothing short of giddy about this whole thing.
So we went out last night to a vacant parking lot after the students moved out for the semester, in the wind and too little clothing for the chilly Colorado Mountain air to do some rocket launching. (Note Aeneas's space jammies. He actually planned that!)
Aeneas is carefully hooking up the launch wires to complete the circuit.
The key that turns the "ready for launch" light on is my favorite part.
A successful landing.
Patrick's rocket has shuttles that glide back down once the parachute is deployed. And we still have one for Aeneas to be built that has a clear payload section that allows you to put critters in it. Watch out lego people and small bugs. You are going on a space mission!
Patrick's NASA Shuttle launch.
Aeneas's Giant Amazon Rocket launch.
Never a dull moment around here. And I can proudly say I can pack a parachute with the best of them!
