Model Rocket launch in Maryland

Been meaning to post this on the weekend and then I just kept forgetting to.  But Steve Eves in Maryland launched the largest “model” rocket mankind has ever seen last Saturday.  I write “model” because the rocket in question was 36-feet tall (scaled at 1:10) and the same type of Saturn V rocket that NASA used to send astronauts to the moon during the Apollo Missions.  He did this for the 40th anniversary of the Apollo Mission, which landed on the moon in 1969.

There’s also video of him showing off his creation while it was in progress.
