June 8, 2012We were fortunate enough to see the launch of the experimental vehicle DC-X on 09/11/1993. This picture was taken the day before when we were allowed to get up close and personal. It was like a "Buck Rogers" movie to watch the rocket raise 30 feet into the air, hover, and translate sideways, and then gracefully descend. It's a shame that the project never reached completion.
Our Advocacy Program provides each Society member a voice in the process.
Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
