For sheer excitement, the launch of a model rocket takes a lot of beating. The tension of the countdown, ignition, a blast of flame and smoke and your creation boosts skywards. The spectacle of a detailed scale rocket hurtling skywards then either drifting down on a recovery parachute or a high performance boost glider circling in a thermal current immediately brings to mind thoughts of interplanetary travel and the infinity of space. Author Stuart Lodge has experienced all forms of model rocketry and built up a depth of experience of the science and practice of this futuristic hobby. This book describes the physics and chemistry for those who want to explore the hobby in-depth but also enables the newcomer to gain the knowledge to safely enjoy it. The whole spectrum of the hobby is covered including: - history - scale - functional model construction - propellants - - stability - recovery - ground support systems -
