In addition to the fun and excitement of building, launching and recovery of your own model rocket, the high-flying Galaxy Glow has significant STEM educational value. This ultra-sleek and colorful model rocket can provide some of the basic building blocks for understanding Newton’s Laws of Motion. The Galaxy Glow is a great looking, beginner skill level model rocket kit that features a molded lime green nose cone, fin can and fins, pre-colored body tube and self-stick decals and it can be assembled and ready to fly in about an hour. When launched with an Estes C6-7 engine, the almost 20 inch tall Galaxy Glow can reach heights of 1,100 feet and is easily recovered by a 12 inch assembled parachute.
