They float, they fly, they zoom, they spin, and they even land on their feet. From a few basic designs, this book shows how to create over fifty unique rockets:

-Sweptwing rockets
-Shortnosed spinner
-And even a lunar lander

After folding their models, readers can use a straw to inflate their rockets to create three-dimensional designs that really fly. Origami folders will find more challenging models as well. Includes throwing instructions and a section on creating new origami designs that allows readers to experiment with making rockets that will go farther, higher, and faster.

All models are authentic origami, requiring no cutting or gluing. With Lew Rozelle's Origami Rockets: Spinners, Zoomers, Floaters, and More, even beginners can create flying machines with only paper and air.
