The USA countered by blowing up its Vanguard on the launch pad… The
Soviets countered this clever move by launching another Sputnik. In those
days, Americans actually cared about what was going on in spaceflight-
because American Idol was still USA to launch its own satellite. On the last
day of January, 1958, they managed to do it. That vehicle was called
Explorer I and the rocket that launched it was a slightly modified Jupiter C
that some politically sensitive types insisted be called the Juno I- the name
really never stuck and today most history books call it the Jupiter C. It is
that vehicle that this kit represents.
This rocket is a kit and requires building- however it is one of the easiest
Dr. Zooch kits to build as well as being one of the best flyers. Flights of over
1,400 feet can be had using a C6-7! NO ENGINES ARE INCLUDED IN THIS
KIT. The completed rocket stands ~12 inches tall. It is single stage and
parachute recovery. If you have constructed a model rocket before, you
have the skills to build this one. If you’ve never constructed a model rocket
before this one will help you build your skills.
The following are the Dr. Zooch skill level
Skill level 1: You’ve seen model rockets before,
but have never built one. In fact you do not even
have a hobby knife or glue, but know where you
can get such things.
Skill level 2: You have your own hobby knife
and glue and know how to use each.
Skill level 3: You once slipped and cut the heck
out of your finger with your hobby knife, but the
folks in the emergency room knew how to re-
Skill level 4: You’ve slipped and cut yourself so
many times with your hobby knife that the little
“snit” sound that the blade makes when it gets
you is failure, you can make a tourniquet out of a
paint brush and the local emergency ward keeps
blood on standby just for you.
Skill level 5: You once slipped with your hobby
knife and cut off a finger, but were able to repair
it yourself with stuff in your hobby tool box.
This kit is a skill level 2
