I Won a Competition!!

Of four people that entered the Iowa State Space Society's model rocket beauty contest, I came out on top, shockingly. Especially considering the fact that I decided to enter and started building only yesterday.

It was modeled after a rocket propelled grenade, and it flew like one, too. I packed the fuselage full of orange chalk-line powder for added effect. It was epic. I'm kind of disappointed that I forgot to bring my camera.

The first prize was a signed copy of "Rocket Boys" by Homer Hickam.

I'll post a picture of the rocket once I get it fixed. It had a rather rough landing...
