Philip is on "rocket team" at our high school. They're in final stages of learning rocket design and launching. This was the NASA TARC competition (take-off and recovery competition, perhaps?). They didn't win. They forgot to install something that would allow the parachute to eject, so their rocket plummeted back down to earth. Aren't we all glad teenagers aren't in charge of the space shuttle?
This rocket exploded soon after lift-off. Neither of these photos is of Philip's team's rocket.
He also took some photos at a local park. I like the look of the water in this one.
And a lovely sunset.
