If the #Easter weekend brings rain, it doesn’t mean kids can’t go on an adventure. By following these simple steps they can even explore as far as outer space! Now, we can’t promise this homemade rocket ship – constructed entirely from household items – meets exact NASA specifications, or is durable enough to survive re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere, but we’re sure it will fire your kids’ imaginations. #EasterTogether
This one is an oldie, but I'm a sucker for NASA's rocket comparison graphics. I cleaned the one above, which I took from this PDF overview of NASA's Space Launch System by the Marshall Space Center. I just wish someone made a high quality vector file to print out in giant format.
