Carlisle-Stine letters now availble online

The Quest Virtual Rocketry Museum now has the entire chain of letters between Orville Carlisle and G. Harry Stine that represent the dawn of model rocketry. It’s easy to hear Carlisle’s enthusiasm over his invention and Stine’s analysis and suggestions from his missile experience. Stine adds spin tabs to an early rocket to increase it’s stability and also records an early CATO event.
