a quick hello from the south of france

Post by jouke »

Hello all,

I'm a Dutch rocket scientist working for a French aero-space lab on solid and hybrid rocket propulsion. I'm passionate about my work, it's thrilling, demanding , complicated and rewarding but ... projects take years to see the light of day and once started most of them end up death before lift-off. That's on of the reasons that my kids and I build waterrockets and fly them in our garden. We now feel that it's time to take things a step further, improve performance, altitude measurments, onboard camera .... You know, all the fun stuff.

Thank's for having us and keep up the good work,

Jouke
