Black powder rockets can be easily staged by using a booster motor that has no delay and no ejection charge, and by placing the upper stage directly over the booster in close proximity. High Power fliers don’t have it so easy. Not only are higher-energy composite propellants harder to light, they must be lit from the very top of the motor core. In this booklet Ray Dunnakin walks us through techniques that allow air starting of these high power motors. Once free of the constraint of having to put the upper stage motor directly over the booster, many other configurations can be used. Ray discusses inline (with large separations), parallel and parasite staging, all with multiple motors.

A Selection of the Scientific American Book Club Want to add more excitement to your life? This daring combination of science, history, and DIY projects will show you how. Written for smart risk takers, it explores why danger is good for you and details the art of living dangerously. Risk takers are more successful, more interesting individuals who lead more fulfilling lives. Unlike watching an action movie or playing a video game, real-life experience changes a person, and Gurstelle will help you discover the true thrill of making black powder along with dozens of other edgy activities. All of the projects—from throwing knives, drinking absinthe, and eating fugu to cracking a bull whip, learning bartitsu, and building a flamethrower—have short learning curves, are hands-on and affordable, and demonstrate true but reasonable risk. With a strong emphasis on safety, each potentially life-altering project includes step-by-step directions, photographs, and illustrations along with troubleshooting tips from experts in the field.

Create projects and projectiles that will fly, float, launch, or roll on their own power with Rubber Band Engineer! So many of the world's most inventive minds, from Ben Franklin to Steve Jobs, were lifelong tinkerers. Their joy in the process is evident in the originality of their work. Maybe that's why so many adults never lose their fondness for the inventive toys they made as kids -- tinkering was fun, and still is, so why stop? Author and Engineer Lance Akiyama shows you how to create twenty-five gadgets of his own design. Most are propelled by rubber bands, while some use levers or gravity for thrust. The combination of simplicity and creativity while using ordinary objects makes these projects so extraordinary! With a wide range of project types, this book takes you beyond the basic rubber band launcher. Let your imagination fly and create the rubber band project of your dreams! Follow the step-by-step guide with suggestions for alternative designs, materials, and third party resources for parts such as propellers and wheels. The possibilities are endless! Rubber Band Engineer is packed with full-color illustrations and will make the perfect gift for any kid or kid at heart.

This book describes the technology, history, and future of rocket planes. Michel van Pelt journies into this exciting world, examining the exotic concepts and actual flying vehicles that have been devised over the last hundred years. He recounts the history of rocket airplanes, from the early pioneers who attached simple rockets onto their wooden glider airplanes to the modern world of high-tech research vehicles. The author visits museums where rare examples of early rocket planes are kept and modern laboratories where future spaceplanes are being developed. He explains the technology in an easily understandable way, describing the various types of rocket airplanes and looking at the possibilities for the future. Michel van Pelt considers future spaceplanes, presenting various modern concepts and developments. He describes the development from cutting edge research via demonstrator vehicles to operational use. He also evaluates the replacement of the Space Shuttle with a seemingly old-fashioned capsule system, the parallel developments in suborbital spaceplanes such as SpaceShipOne and SpaceShipTwo, piloted versus automatic flight, and related developments in airliners and military aircraft.
