Followup: Watch the 36-Foot Rocket Take Flight (Video)

Geek Culture

On Saturday, Steve Eves did in fact enter the record books with the launch of the largest model rocket ever: a 1:10 scale model of a Saturn V.

I’d hoped to be there, as I mentioned in my original article, but events in my family life made that impossible. So I have to make do, as do most people, with some of the very good video many people who did make it there took. Of the many posted online, the one below is the best I’ve seen—keep watching after the initial viewing of the launch for a slow-motion replay. This is another good one, including up-close views of the recovered rocket from after the launch.
