NASA Rockets - A Free Coaster Set

@arh2 and I continued our collaboration together (Apollo 11 shadowbox) on a space themed rocket coaster set celebrating NASA’s 50 years of human space flight. Featuring the Apollo Saturn 5, the Space Shuttle and Artemis with SLS and Orion stacked. Each of the rockets are in the correct proportions to each of the others.

The coasters are 4"x 6" and printed on the reverse of proofgrade medium clear acrylic. The base is printed and sized for proofgrade thick cherry plywood.

Tips:

  • set the rockets themselves to engrave draft graphic
  • Leave the text and NASA logo to engrave at SD graphic
  • Set the exhausts to Score

I live not far from the NASA engine test facility, and there’s a museum there… I think I’ll make one for them, if that’s ok…

Of course @hansepe could put some in his old lunch room at NASA. If I’m not mistaken he worked on all three rockets. :rocket:

:older_man: I’m not that old, Apollo was cancelled for 10 years before I started working shuttle program. Of course, that still makes me old, but 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.

Are you talking about or the Infinity Science Center? They actually have a Saturn booster there from the Apollo program. Did they move all of the stuff from Stennis (formerly NSTL) out there now?

Anyway, what @arh2 said: we’d be thrilled!

Yes, the Infinity Science Center. I take my teenage girls out there often “because they love it”…more like because I’m still a big kid who dreamed of going to space.
The Saturn booster is still there, and they have brought in a good bit of stuff from the Stennis facilities. Great family fun, if anyone is close enough.

Haha, sorry, yes that would make you ancient come to think of it… :laughing:

I’m new here (well, technically lurked off and on for years, but finally got a GF recently), so sorry for the dumb question.

Anyhow, are the rocket engravings colored gold somehow or is that something like the edge-lit effect with the cherry wood?

Reflections from the cherry wood in this case.
