Photo Synthesis

The Joy of Rockets

I was asked to give a three minute talk at the TED conference to try to convey some of the excitement about the hobby. I should have just quoted Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen:
“In terms of sheer coolness, few things beat rocketry.”

Instead, I put together a photo montage, and commented on the stream:

The rocket projects have grown significantly since then, so consider this a teaser for future posts. Oh, and here’s a sweet video montage from the last BALLS launch. It opens with a ground shot of our big QP rocket blasting off…

I am heading off to Dairy Aire tonight… to launch video rockets and a manic blinky night rocket, rebuilt from the prior post… Will bring cameras… But will likely be offline for a couple days… If you are near central California, you might want to check it out.
