a bit off the current topic, but I finally saw October Sky this past weekend, absolutely fantastic movie for anyone who is a rocket buff.

And there's a big model rocket competition this Saturday (5/13) at Great Meadows in The Plains, VA this Saturday, several hundred launches.


The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is the world's largest rocket contest, sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and the National Association of Rocketry (NAR). It was created in the fall of 2002 as a one-time celebration of the Centennial of Flight, but the enthusiasm about the event was so great that AIA and NAR were asked to hold the contest annually.
