[b]SpaceX Falcon 9 and Dragon Flying Model Rocket[/b]
Available soon from Amazon.com
On Dec. 8, 2010, SpaceX became the first commercial company in history to launch, fly, and recover a spacecraft from Earth orbit.
The Falcon 9 rocket delivered the Dragon spacecraft to orbit where it circled the Earth at speeds greater than 17,000 miles per hour (7,600 meters per second).
After nearly two orbits, Dragon fired its thrusters to begin reentry and splashed down in the Pacific Ocean three hours, 19 minutes, and 52 seconds after liftoff.
Now you can build and fly your own 1:88 scale model of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket with the Dragon spacecraft. With molded nose and tail, and full color stickers for body and nose, the impressive finished model stands a big 22.8 inches (58 centimeters) tall. No painting required!
The kit includes molded transparent fins for flight, which can then be removed for display. Dual parachutes return the Falcon 9 and Dragon separately to Earth.
