"I realized up there that our planet is not infinite. It's fragile. That may not be obvious to alot of folks, and it's tough that people are fighting each other here on Earth instead of trying to get together and live on this planet. We look pretty vulnerable in the darkness of space." Astronaut Alan B. Shepard Jr.

Model Rocketry opens paths for students to enter Engineering, Aviation, and Rocketry fields to benefit all living things and our future. Those who plan to assist with science experiments on an off planet will benefit from taking rocketry courses so that they can best plan for equipment to travel safely on or in rockets/robotic devices to exploration destinations. Enjoy these resources and the skies! Alan Shepard Project.
