Rocket Science 101 from NASA

As we all know, rockets are what launch the remote sensing satellites that many of us depend on for our geospatial data into orbit. So, while not strictly geography-related, rocket science is still essential and now NASA is giving everyone a chance to be a rocket scientist with their Rocket Science 101 website. You can design your own Altas V or Delta II rocket, and learn all about what makes these amazing machines fly. I have already killed about a half hour building my own Atlas V, and learning all about payload fairing and other incredible exciting things about rockets.
