Extreme Rocketry magazine

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.

  1. I haven’t read that magazine in particular but several years ago I used to read “High Powered Rocketry” and was totally fascinated with some of the rocket engines those people had built. I personally want to build the “Gerald Polytronic” engine but it looks like it’d be a pain to build on a small scale and my friend who IS a rocket scientist has yet to tell me if the guy’s design would actually work without exploding.
