From the days of the first black powder rocket sent skyward by the Chinese to the launch of the Space Shuttle, people have been entranced by objects shooting skyward on brilliant lances of flame. Nowadays, almost anyone can get involved with a very modest outlay of money. Others, however, can spend fortunes pursuing the thrill of launching something higher, faster, or farther. Oklahoma Tripoli's V2 project is an example of the directions you can travel.
This web page is here to serve as a source of information to those either seeking to get started in this hobby or looking for information on the various aspects of rocketry. It also serves as the base of operations of the only NAR sanctioned rocketry club in Oklahoma (OkRA). Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at 18:00 (6 P.M.) at Quest Consultants Inc. (directions below).
And now, without further ado,
The newest batch of rocket pics.
