  • Description

    Have you ever stopped to wonder what happens to all the bits that drop off a rocket after it has been launched?
    Most of as know that rocket launching bases, such as this one at Cape Canaveral where the Vanguard is being launched, are usually on the coast, and the fallen sections usually lie on the bed of the ocean. But these fallen sections are of great interest to scientists in their study of flight behaviour, and here is an interview with John Light, a skin diver, who has taken part in missile recovery.

    This is some of the film John Light has shot in he course of his recovery work.
