Check It: The World’s Largest Model Rocket
The economy might be in the dumper, but that hasn’t stopped one man from entering space. On April 25th, Steve Eves will launch the world’s largest model rocket into the atmosphere. It’s powered by nine motors, measures 36-feet long and weighs 16,000 pounds. Controlled my remote, the rocket will reach a max altitude of 3,000 to 4,000 feet and will put Steve into the history books.
