Mission Control

Public description

A community for rockets, big and small.#### Description


Everything from the Saturn V to ion thrusters to model rockets with your family.

Professional, amateur, theoretical... Engineers, scientists and physicists, and everyone else welcome.

PM a mod if you have credentials for special flair. Indicate if you are a student, professional, or have your certification from a rocketry association. Please include your NAR/TRA number if that is the case.

###Rules 1: Be respectful

It's not that hard. If you get enough reports, and the mod team believes they're valid, you may be temporarily muted or banned. If a pattern of behavior emerges about you, you may be permanently banned.

2: Don't promote unsafe or illegal activities

Case-by-case. Think: Might my post encourage others to do things that could hurt them or break the law?

3: No offtopic posts

Even though you probably want to post a Cool Thing™, if it's not directly related to rockets it belongs somewhere else. Memes belong in r/rocketrymemes, not here.

Note: Interpretation and enforcement of the above rules is wholly at the discretion of the moderator team.
