History of Estes model rockets

This 21-minute mini doc looks at the creation of the model rocket hobby in the late 1950s and the creation and rise of Estes Industries, the first large-scale commercial model rocket company. Some great footage and photos here of G.Harry Stine, Vern and Gleda Estes, Mike Dorffler (inventor of the Cineroc), Bob Cannon (Estes educational outreach), and others.
