When I was a kid, I lived for rockets, both modeled and those build by NASA. I haven’t been involved in the hobby for years, but whenever I see a rocketry mag at a newsstand, I buy it and fantasize about maybe diving in again. Of course, since I was a kid, hobby rocketry has gotten a tad… extreme. There’s even a magazine dedicated to the more intense practitioners and their multi-storied birds. It’s called, fittingly enough, Extreme Rocketry. The November 07 issue has recently been announced.
