CP Technologies Propellant Class Enrollment

(ROL Newswire) -- CP Technologies has opened enrollment for their next solid rocket motor design class. It runs three days and starts on April 16, 2004. The class costs $195 and includes the "How To Make Amateur Rockets" 2nd Edition bookset, all motor/propellant materials and lunches. A $30 discount is given to students who already own the 2nd Edition bookset. Students do not have to be US citizens and do not have to be members of any rocketry organization.

After students learned how to design a composite solid rocket motor, the class instructor assigns each student a maximum peak chamber pressure and pressure-time curve goal. The students design a rocket motor to meet that goal and then mixed and cast the propellant as well as make the motor parts. The motors are static fired on the last day of the class at Wickman Spacecraft & Propulsion Company facilities. In the previous classes, no student has had a motor failure or failed to come close to the design goal.

People interested in the class should sign up as soon as possible as class size is restricted to seven students. More information on the class can be found at http://www.space-rockets.com/ae101
