Host your own Global Rocket Launch event and make history with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center!
We invite you to put your rocket building expertise to work and join the fun as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. On July 16, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center plans to set a new Guinness World Record by simultaneously launching 5,000 Estes rockets.
While not everyone can be in Huntsville for the Guinness event, you can join the celebration by participating in the Center’s Global Rocket Launch that will also be held on that day. The world held its collective breath 50 years ago when the magnificent Saturn V rocket launched. We want to salute that global spirit by having alumni around the world launch a rocket and participate in a group rocket launch.
