Cox Report - May 25, 1999
& The PRC stole design information on the United StatesÌ most advanced thermonuclear weapons as a result of a sustained espionage effort targeted at the United StatesÌ nuclear weapons facilities, including our national weapons laboratories
& Our national weapons laboratories are responsible for, among other things, the design of thermonuclear warheads for our ballistic missiles
& Even though the United States discovered in 1995 that the PRC had stolen design information on the W-88 Trident D-5 warhead and technical information on a number of other U.S
Thermonuclear Warhead Design Information, and PRC Missile and Space Forces for more detailed discussions of the Select CommitteeÌs investigation of these matters
military officer and associated members of the design team for a U.S
satellite manufacturers transferred missile design information and know-how to the PRC without obtaining the legally required licenses
& The illegally transmitted information is useful for the design and improved reliability of future PRC ballistic missiles, as well
& In addition, design and testing know-how and procedures communicated during the launch failure reviews could be applied to the reliability of missiles or rockets generally
Model Rocket Drag Analysis, NAR R&D Report
NAR R and D Report.
DeMar NAR 52094 2nd Place NARAM-37 July 1995 Geneseo, NY TABLE OF CONTENTS 1.0 1.1 Background 1.2 Test System 1.3 Basis of Calculations 1.4 Limitations & Assumptions 2.0 2.1 Scalability 2.2 Surface Effects 2.3 Fin Effects 2.4 Launch Lug Effects 2.5 Nose Shape Series 2.6 Body Shape Series 3.0 3.1 Verification Method 3.2 Altitude Prediction Software 3.3 Motor Selection 3.4 Results 4.0 Appendix A: Appendix B: Introduction This NAR Research & Development report describes a series of experiments using a computerized wind tunnel to determine the drag coefficients of typical model rocket designs
The design of this equipment is less sophisticated than a wind tunnel found at a research facility, but is more accurate than the typical home-made device
Some applications are: optimizing parameters for maximum altitude in a competition design; selecting an appropriate motor for the model and field size; and verifying compliance within the limit of an FAA waiver
1.0 Project Description 1.1 Background Most serious rocket hobbyists are interested in predicting the apogee of their model, either for design optimization, motor selection, FAA waiver compliance, or just plain curiosity

Crystal Rocket Radio
How to build your own, by Gary Litwin, using a water-powered toy rocket. Text-only,
with an ASCII art diagram.
There are many MANY circuits for ccrystal radios, but I selected one that has only a loopstick, diode and earphone, to remain faithful to the design of the one I had as a kid
Low-Yield Earth-Penetrating Nuclear Weapons
Federation of American Scientist report on US development of a new generation of
precision low-yield nuclear weapons.
The B61-11 Nuclear Bomb However, mini-nuke advocates mostly coming from the nuclear weapons labs argue that low-yield nuclear weapons should be designed to destroy even deeper targets
The US introduced an earth-penetrating nuclear weapon in 1997, the B61-11, by putting the nuclear explosive from an earlier bomb design into a hardened steel casing with a new nose cone to provide ground penetration capability
The labs desire the challenge of designing new nuclear weapons, simply for the scientific and technical training experience the effort would bring
But could the US deploy a new low-yield nuclear earth-penetrating weapon without testing it? Under continued political pressure to support the Test Ban and its related Stockpile Stewardship Program, Los Alamos Associate Director Steve Younger has stated, "one could design and deploy a new set of nuclear weapons that do not require nuclear testing to be certified
Since the natural energy scale for a fission nuclear weapon is of order 10 KT, much lower yield weapons must be sensitive to exacting design tolerances; the final yield is determined by an exponentially growing number of fission-produced neutrons, so the total number of neutron generations must be finely-tuned

1968 January 29 - Saturn V and Saturn I Workshop designations.
The ground-outfitted OWS to be launched with Saturn V would be designated the 'Saturn V Workshop.' (This had sometimes been called the 'dry Workshop.') The OWS that would be launched by a Saturn IB would be referred to as the 'Saturn I Workshop.' (Colloquially it had been referred to as the 'wet workshop.') Terminology 'Uprated Saturn I' would not be used officially

Richard Nakka's Experimental Rocketry Site
General information on what amateur experimental rocketry involves, and considerable
specific information on motor and rocket design.
In addition to my own work, I am including some remarkable work done by others in this exciting field! A mateur E xperimental R ocketry ? A mateur Experimental Rocketry is, in my humble opinion, one of the most challenging, educational and exciting hobbies! Unlike Model Rocketry or High Power Rocketry, experimental rocketry is an activity whereby rockets are designed and constructed entirely from 'scratch' -- including motor and propellant
The goal of Amateur Experimental Rocketry (AER), often simply referred to as Amateur Rocketry or Experimental Rocketry , is to design, build, test and launch rockets
