(WARNING: a very short moment of language which may be considered offensive at approximately 17-18 seconds into the video... sorry!) This is a clip of the launch of Steve Eaves' 1/10th scale Saturn V rocket. The rocket was built in honor of the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11. This rocket, it's successful launch and recovery was a world record for the largest and heaviest amateur built rocket. Hardly amateur, Steve put his heart and soul into building an amazingly accurate museum-quality creation which now holds a place of honor next to an original Saturn V in Huntsville Alabama. The video is nothing technologically special but a record of what it was like for me and my wife Barbara to be only 600 feet from the launch. It was very exciting as well evidenced by the screams and yelps heard shortly after liftoff!
