Editorial: Why rocketry matters to me & inspiring others from Rocketry Planet
My six years with rocketry have been very important to me. Because of what I've learned. But more about what I still need to learn. I fell into this hobby as the result of a coworker/friend. Upon entering I was super hungry for the knowledge. I soon realized that knowledge came by experience, not sheer hope. And not by speed, or fast. Since then I have tempered my learning. To continue learning, but not to force it too quickly. Soon I was a happy rocketeer, learning as time allowed. Making correct designs. Making mistakes, and hopefully learning from them.
