Rocket science is always the go-to allegory when describing something complex, but can it be explained more easily? For this Meetup, we invite people to hear about the experiences of rocket enthusiasts, including trade-offs and compromises, first-steps towards launching a rocket, what it is like to participate in the ‘Spaceport America cup’, and the launch of a sounding rocket to nine kilometers altitude. We will also be showcasing a demo engine of our own design.
