CENJARS May 2019 launch report

CENJARS May 2019 Launch Report

Our May launch was delayed until May 19th due to weather and Mother’s Day. We had a beautiful blue sky but some winds keep most launches to lower powered motors. Guests from Central Regional High School’s rocketry club joined us again, and enjoyed seeing a Estes Mammoth launch on an F26. We also enjoyed a launch of a Freedom 7 / Mercury-Redstone in honor of Alan Shepard’s first manned flight into space back on May 5, 1961. We had 30 launches with launch totals as follows:

12 – A motors
4 – B motors
11 – C motors
2 – D motors
0 – E motors
1 – F motors
0 – G motor

After most launches were completed, a brief planning meeting was held for our July 20th 50th Anniversary Celebration of Apollo 11 Landing. Flyers/Posters are being completed by John Falcone, and others in the group will be posting to area locations, with community groups, and in the news media. Charlie has been able to arrange Tom Timko, NASA Solar System Ambassador, to give a presentation on July 20th. He will discuss and field questions about the Apollo moon landing and the future of space exploration. The exceptional visual aids which accompany this informative presentation include lunar meteorites, planet and moon globes, plus several Apollo mission models including a four-foot see-thru Saturn V rocket. Anyone that can lend folding tables and chairs, please let us know. Additionally if anyone has any contact with a food truck, we would like to arrange to have one present during the lunch hours. Please plan to spend the day with us hosting this event and sharing rocketry with the community!
