Rocketeering In The Hawkeye State
We launched some model rockets over the weekend. What were the chances of hanging one off a power line? 100% in our case.
We used a C-6-5 engine. Pretty powerful. Thought we were far enough into the field with very little wind. We were wrong.
After using a bunch of B’s and A’s, this C had a little more momentum leaving the launch pad. The trajectory of the super duper spaceship was basically straight down. The chances it would land on that power line must’ve been infinitesimal.
Next time, we’ll get a little farther out into the field and choose a cloudy day. A storm will have to bring that one down. The sun was straight overhead and we couldn’t see much when we blasted these things into the sky.
