Rockets from Kodiak

In this blog we often talk about the "natural" things of Kodiak. But, we live in a surprisingly advanced island.

For example, on the week before Thanksgiving we launched a non-military rocket, sending into orbit 7 satelites and 16 scientific experiments.

Think we're kidding, don't you?

We might like fishing, hiking, and other outdoors stuff. But we are not "all Bubba".

Check out the video of the take off:

The launch site is located just beyond the place I took the pics on the blog before Thanksgiving, of the last salmon swimming upstream and the eagle's feast. It's just past the Pasagshak river.
