This is a blog for Rocket guys by Rocket guys. The ARC was formed to introduce and educate the public about both low and high power rocketry. We love to build rockets, both large and small. We want to expand the sport,pass on the knowhow that we have learned, and hopefully get some from others to also pay it foward. Some like to keep it to themselves. We hope to get people reinterested in space and the importance of math,and science in school.
The Soyuz TMA-21 launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Tuesday, April 5, 2011, carrying Expedition 27 Soyuz Commander Alexander Samokutyaev, NASA Flight Engineer Ron Garan and Russian Flight Engineer Andrey Borisenko to the International Space Station. The Soyuz, which has been dubbed "Gagarin", is launching one week shy of the 50th anniversary of the launch of Yuri Gagarin from the same launch pad in Baikonur on April 12, 1961 to become the first human to fly in space.
