Got the latest, April 2005, issue of Popular Mechanics today.
The main article headline is "The Backyard Space Race", subtitled
"Who Needs NASA? Low-Budget Rocketeers Blast Off"
The cover photo features a shot of a couple of HPR rockets at ROC-Stock in
the Mojave Desert.
The article is centered on the rocketry, but wanders off into alleys of
Pumpkin Chuckers, Monster Kites, Power Tool powered Vehicles, etcetera.
The rocketry details are a wee bit sensationalistic, but mostly on target.
The AP link to Shuttle Boosters is mentioned a couple of times, as is the
ATF interest in the hobby.
Check it out at your newsstands.
