Although I can take credit for being the author of this handbook,much of its content is the hard work of other members, past andpresent, of the Columbus High School Science Olympiad team. Iwould like to take this opportunity to thank them and the manyothers for their contributions to this handbook.
Will Evans
, the only one among us who actually plans to be-come an aeronautical engineer, is responsible for many of thebuilding techniques listed in the handbook. He protected his de-signs for reinforced fins, airspeed flaps, and drogue chutes as if they were children, before I decided to publish them to the world.Thanks Will.
Jamal Shaukat
, our longest member of the Science Olympiadteam. Two years ago, he and I spent many long hours devel-oping the elliptical parachute algorithms and building the firstparachutes. And now, despite being a sophomore in college, Ja-mal still manages to attend more state competitions and rocketlaunches than anyone else on the team.
Linda Owens
, our Science Olympiad coach, whom I promisedto leave plans and drawings for my rockets before I graduate.Instead I’m leaving her a book. Good enough.And the rest of the
Columbus High School Science Olym-piad Team
, especially those of you who have come out to sup-port us on cold, rainy days, chasing rockets through an overgrownfield of weeds and thornbushes. We couldn’t have done it withoutyou.iii
