    We are adding an another special contest at NSL 2019, open to registered flyers.

    The “Human Spaceflight Contest" is basically an altitude contest to commemorate one of the ultimate achievements of Human Spaceflight, landing on the Moon in 1969.

    Type:
    Scale/Sport-Scale

    Classes:
    Open LPR and HPR (separate prizes). There will be one set of prizes for the highest 3 LPR entries and one set for the highest 3 HPR entries. Only one entry per class per flyer will be counted. You may enter multiple times per class, but we will just use the highest of the entries.

    Qualification:
    Fly a scale or sport-scale model of an actual rocket used for Human Spaceflight. No fantasy or planned future rockets. The list of acceptable models are: Vostock, Mercury-Redstone, Mercury-Atlas, NA X-15, Voskhod, Gemini-Titan, Soyuz, Apollo-Saturn IB, Apollo-Saturn V, Apollo-LEM, Space Shuttle, Shenzhou, or Spaceship One/Two. Models must be in the Human Spaceflight configuration (i.e. no ICBM versions).

    Altitude determination:
    A commercially available altimeter should be used to determine altitude. Write altitude on contest entry card, have friend witness the altitude. Rocket must be recovered safely.

    Further details will be published as they become available.

    The NSL web page currently has details for the "Land the Eagle" contest to be held at NSL 2019.

    Here I was thinking that it was for the scattering of ashes of our lost brethren.
