If you look carefully, you'll see one of the foam stabilizers (black in color) fall down before the rocket itself lands.
In other news, it looks like autumn has finally agreed to join us. Yay!
|Solar Home (of sorts) A sample solar home complete with window, inside insulation, solar panel, and ceiling fan. So cute I had to take a photo.|
|Ceiling Fan up close Nice view of the ceiling fan and the inside insulation.|
|Science on a Sphere One of Boonshoft's newest attractions is Science on a Sphere. 4 video projectors (one visible as the lens flare) shine onto this 3-D globe. In this instance, "The Blue Marble" video is playing. Created out of actual satellite photos of the Earth from orbit.|
|Water Rocket #1 The first of two rockets which we built. Foam nosecone & card stabilizers (three). I spent more time building this one. (And, with its crappy appearance, it shows!)|
|Water Rocket #2 In this one, we had foam stabilizers (glue-gunned on) and a paper cone. The video is of this one flying.|
