Build Your Own Spaceship

Thanks to sites like aRocket.net getting to space is now as easy as learning new skills and spending large sums of money.

They offer links to rocketry information for every level from rank amateur to experimental and professional. Learn it yourself, build it yourself and fly it yourself.
Their section, First Steps in Rocketry, provides tutorials and resources for every aspect of rocketry from propulsion to guidance. The section on Mechanical Engineering and Materials shows how NASA builds their rockets and links to books at Amazon.com that discuss composite material manufacture and design.

With this site, some really hard work and lots of disposable capital, just about anyone could become an astronaut....
