Here are a group of rocket photos that you can use in classroom activities. All of these rockets are variations of the Atlas rocket, which was first developed as an Air Force Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. These photos were gathered by Honie Lui, of Independence High School, Independence, Ohio, in May, 2005, as part of a Senior Shadowing Project.
