ARIZONA STAR TALES - NOTE: Until further notice, all events have been cancelled and no requests are being accepted at this time due to the pandemic
This month at the South Mountain Environmental Education Center was all about rockets! Their history, design, operation, and future. How do we get all those astronomy satellites into orbit? This month's attendees know! It was a hot evening here in Phoenix so we spent most of the time in the cool assembly room but we still set up our telescopes afterwards. Ask anyone who attended this event and they can tell you just from this one picture what all the smoke is from, what kind of rocket engine is being used, what those tall thin towers are for, why the water tower, and how this rocket is controlled. Another fun event with all our new 'Rocket Scientist' friends!
Next month at the center, Friday, 21 July: 'Venus: Sister Planet or Evil Twin?'
