Having a Blast (Photos)

Erik Maldonado, co-owner of Mad Science of the Mid-Hudson, based in Goshen, discussed the technology of rockets in a program on Monday (June 24) at the Butterfield Library before launching a few high into the Cold Spring sky. Each rocket contained a parachute to bring it back to earth safely. One was recovered a mile away and another landed on the roof of a nearby house of one of the children in attendance.
