As you might have guessed in a "Beginner" forum, this is where you are invited to ask all of your questions when you are just beginning in rocketry or even restarting a hobby that you had "long, long ago in a land far, far away."

Ask away, there are lots of people around here who will be happy to lend you a hand and pass along the knowledge they have gained with years of practice and (sometimes hard) experience.

No one will make fun of you or attack you for being new and honestly, this is the place where there ARE no stupid questions.

Give us your best shot...:)

Does this mean a Barn Swallow flies at the same speed as a barn?

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if the wood chuck is Chuck Norris?

What does beginner mean?

How do I post a reply?

If your traveling at 50% the speed of light to Alpha Centauri from the sun, how many years does it take to get there?

If you're in the sun, you're dead already so it doesn't matter anyway.:D

But, what if you're driving in your car backwards at the speed of light and you turn on your headlights. Can you see them?

And here we have yet more proof that this is the Silly Season of Model Rocketry, when we await the warm weather as well as the next generation...who wisely aren't venturing out in the ice and wind. ;) :p

It is said that achieving the speed of light is impossible, so what if your in a space ship going 1 ft/sec slower than the speed of light and you shoot a gun out the front of the space ship? (The spaceship isn't going backwards either)

Time slows down as you approach the speed of light, so does that mean time reverses when you go negative miles an hour?

Why do clocks tick clockwise?

If nothing sticks to Teflon, then how do they get it to stick to the pan?

What is the black dot in the middle of bird poop?
