ROL NEWS--Western Space Technology Releases CD-ROM Resource

Western Space Technology Releases CD-ROM Resource December 29, 2003 Web posted at: 3:01 PM EST
(ROL Newswire) -- Western Space Technology has recently teamed up with
Richard Nakka, an expert on sugar-based rocket propellant and experimental rocketry. In a time when regulations threaten to strangle commercial HPR motor manufacturers and rising shipping costs make rocketry increasingly expensive, WST and Nakka came together to provide a low-cost alternative. Nakka's well-organized website ≥NAKKA-ROCKETRY.NET ≠ Amateur Experimental Rocketry≤, which describes in full how to safely build amateur high power sugar-based motors, is now available on CD.
While this material is accessible to all through the internet, dial-up connections are slow (even highspeed connections pale in comparison to direct viewing), servers go down periodically, and rocket activities often take place far from civilization. WST owner and experimental rocketeer Joseph Jimmerson states, "This disk is great for quick offline viewing or for taking to the rocket lab, workshop, test facility or rocket range! If you have ever considered building your own motors, this disk is your most valuable resource!"
The disk also includes hundreds of movies, high-resolution images, and other materials not found on his website. Topics include propulsion theory, motor data, construction techniques and instructions, propellant characteristics and mixing, rocket design, payload design, and so much more. This resource disk is offered exclusively through Western Space Technology ( ) for $16 (US/Canadian orders) and $18 (international orders). Updates are to be released periodically. A preview of this CD can be viewed by visiting /.
