Rocket Gallery

ESMD Logo Image

As an additional feature for the Beginner's Guide to Rockets, we are including a gallery of photographs of rockets used by NASA to launch a variety of payloads into orbit. A few of the photographs are historical and pre-date the establishment of NASA. There are many more rockets in existence than those listed here. The gallery does not include military rockets, except where the military rocket was later modified for use as a launcher, and the gallery does not include rockets from other countries. The pictures may be copied and used by students and teachers in the preparation of reports and classroom activities.

These photos were gathered by Honie Lui, of Independence High School, Independence, Ohio, in May, 2005, as part of a Senior Shadowing Project. Click on the topic title to view additional photos.
