Darin from Synacor brought his kids. Eric isn't one of his kids.
We thought the kids would love riding in the Rhino but for some reason it really freaked them out
And off they go! To the launch field!
Eric driving the Rhino
Here we are at Spaceport Eden. Otherwise known as the field across from the Scheribers' house
Getting the first rocket in place
Everyone looking for the rocket (and trying to catch it!)
Eric did some quick math to estimate the altitude we got out of the rocket
An itty bitty rocket ready to go
Darin waiting for the next launch
The little rocket was super fast and flew out of the camera frame before I even realized it had launched!
My pre-made rocket worked perfectly!
There it is!
Looks like the parachute deployed!
Eric ran after it and successfully caught it
Modifying the Amazon rocket to make the engine fit properly
And away it goes! This monster was quite a bit slower but was still fun
Bradley runs after the Amazon rocket
Catch it!
On this launch the red and silver rocket took off at a sort of strange angle. This was partially on purpose (to counteract wind) but I think we overdid it..
Now this looks like a bad idea....
And indeed it was! I made sure I was behind the Rhino during this launch..
The Amazon coming down after a successful parachute deployment. You can see the (biodegradable!) wadding falling above it
Touchdown!
And a picture of the day. I figured my space Brony shirt would be appropriate for today's activities!
