Above you see a rare photo of Dave Miller, appropriately dressed in black as owner of the clandestine black ops organization known as Sirius Rocketry! What does he do in his spare time? He reads Rocket Babe, what else?

That's a nice looking Cestris Fighter he's holding too! Get yours from https://www.siriusrocketry.com

Verna Starr Cestris Fighter!

Above you see our favorite Sirius kit, the Cestris. The kit is intended to fly on a single engine but it was easily modified to a 3 engine cluster complete with Verna Starr fighter decals, also available from Sirius.

When You're Too Close

tooclose21.jpg

A NASA photographer was able to salvage a camera's memory card and watch the final moments before the device was engulfed in flames while filming a launch at a California air base. Longtime NASA photographer Bill Ingalls wanted to shoot the launch of Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-on, or GRACE-FO, at Vandenberg Air Force Base.

Judging from the photo I'd say Bill was just a tad too close on this one and it cost him a camera but getting too close to the pads is a common malady at many launches.

A few years back during my time as president of our local club the one thing I had to deal with more than any other was distance to the pads violations. I've heard every excuse and rationalization for why some flyers are special and it's ok for them to be 2 feet from the pad as their beloved rocket goes up but the safety code is there for a reason; mostly to protect the "special" people from themselves and the landowner from people with little minds and big rockets.

If you've been to a NAR or TRA launch or read the safety code that comes with most engines you know how far back you should be when the launch button is pushed for the engine being used, so how about be a good flyer and do the range officers a favor by complying with the code without having to be told to, BACK UP!

Seriously, no matter what your mom might have told you, you're not more special than the code.
