A collection of articles by professional experts, geared to the organization of amateur groups interested in model rockets. Emphasizing safe construction, launching and testing, the subjects of forming rocket clubs, satellite orbit geometry, design elements in model rockets, fuel pumps, turbines, test instrumentation, and launching are carefully discussed. Diagrammed, illustrated, and including formulas, this is a do-it-yourself book for only the most serious, dedicated and adept followers of rocket development.
